Hertz New Zealand Adds Hybrid Toyota Camry Sedans to Fleet

Hertz New Zealand is to introduce hybrid-powered Toyota Camry sedans from 25 October 2010 at key corporate rental locations in Auckland and Wellington.

The new Camrys continue a commitment by Hertz to maximise environment-friendly practices in New Zealand. They also address increasing demand from Hertz corporate customers, who are seeking ways to reduce both the cost of travel and the impact on the environment.

The new hybrid Toyota Camry meets both of these requirements, consuming substantially less fuel and creating much lower emissions than comparable conventionally-powered vehicles, said Greg King, Hertz Regional Manager Operations New Zealand. We have very strong green credentials in New Zealand and last year achieved an Enviro Bronze rating from Qualmark New Zealand in recognition of our commitment to green practices... Many of our corporate customers also give preference to green products or business partners who act to minimise their impact on the environment, and our addition of the hybrid Camry addresses this increasing trend in business.

The hybrid Camry is alternately powered by a 2.4 litre, four cylinder petrol engine and a powerful electric motor, which is activated when the vehicle decelerates or is stationary, minimising fuel burn and exhaust emissions.

Typical fuel consumption is estimated in the low 6 litre range for every 100 kilometres driven in the hybrid Camry approximately 30% less than similar-size vehicles powered by conventional petrol engines.

The hybrid Camry also complies with the strict Euro 4 emission standard, while Land Transport New Zealand has rated the car 5 out of 6 for fuel economy. Typical CO2 emissions are just 142 grams per kilometre driven. Even the air conditioner in the hybrid Camry has an ECO mode.

But green attributes are not the only favourable features of the new Camry. Its spacious cabin seats five passengers comfortably, while offering a 6-disc in-dash CD and MP3 player, enabling the driver or passengers to enjoy their own music while renting from Hertz.
