Macclesfield (PRWEB UK) 3 January 2013
Hybrid vehicles are becoming increasingly popular in the UK. The technology is the marrying of fuel engines with an electrically powered engine to create a cleaner, more fuel efficient way of powering a vehicle.
Lexus has sold more than half a million hybrid vehicles since 2005. A total of 506,000 Lexus hybrid vehicles have been sold since 2005, with a total of 32,700 sold in the UK. At the end of April 2012 four million Lexus and Toyota hybrids had been sold globally.
Car Loan 4U Co-Director James Wilkinson comments;
“Lexus are pioneers of hybrid technology and we are not surprised to see the increase in sales of hybrid vehicles over the last few years. Cheaper to run and better for the environment, hybrid vehicles are undoubtedly here to stay.
“It’s also worth noting that since early 2012, more new diesel vehicles are sold in the UK than petrol powered vehicles. With increasing costs, including fuel costs, it’s easy to see why motorists are looking for savings when it comes to vehicle choice.”
Buying a new car can cut running costs for vehicles quite considerably – they often have lower insurance and tax costs, as well as massively improved fuel efficiency compared to older vehicles.
For example, In November Lexus unveiled the new CT 200h Advance, which is available £24,495 OTO. The new Lexus CT 200h advance is built on the Lexus Hybrid Drive system, which means it produces just 94g/km of CO2 emissions. This means that the vehicle is not only exempt from the London congestion charge, but road tax too.
