Hertz New Zealand is to offer customers an all-diesel fleet of Toyota Prado 4WDs as part of its ongoing sustainability policy to reduce carbon emissions.

The new 3.0 litre Toyota Prado VX Diesels will be introduced progressively from 15 June, 2009, at key Hertz locations throughout New Zealand’s South Island.

By 1 October, 2009, all Hertz Toyota Prados in the South Island will be diesel powered, while the North Island Prado fleet will be all-diesel by 1 March, 2010.

“The Toyota Prado is one of our most popular vehicles, particularly on the South Island where alpine and long distance driving are both very popular,” said Murray Hodges, Managing Director of Hertz New Zealand. “By upgrading to the new Toyota Prado VX Turbo Diesel, we are achieving the dual goals of providing a more fuel-efficient vehicle for our customers and a more environment-friendly vehicle for New Zealand.”

The new Prado will meet Euro IV emission standards, an international level adopted by Hertz New Zealand as an environmental benchmark.

In addition to providing a more fuel-efficient option for Hertz customers, the diesel Prado also incorporates a large number of safety features, including driver and front passenger airbags, plus side, front and rear curtain airbags, anti-lock braking and vehicle stability control.

Standard features of the new Hertz Prado also include a low-noise cabin, stylish leather trim interior and a six-disc MP3 CD player, enabling passengers to plug in their IPOD or MP3 device and listen to their favourite music.

A 50/50 split-fold rear seat provides the option of additional luggage space. As well, the Prado’s spacious cabin and long wheelbase combine to deliver a smooth ride.

Hertz has more than 8000 locations in 145 countries, with more than 40 locations in New Zealand and more than 200 in Australia.
