Toyota Prius to tour Britain

Thu, 11 Jun 2009
People considering buying a car in the coming months may want to take the opportunity to check out the latest model from Toyota.

The new Prius is currently touring the UK so that potential customers can get a good look at the environmentally-friendly model.

Currently, the vehicle is on display at the Bull Ring in Birmingham.

It will then move onto the Trafford Centre in Manchester, before finishing up at Bluewater in Kent.

Earlier this week, the model participated in the Revolve Eco Rally - a trip from Brighton to London designed to showcase the latest green motors on the market.

The Prius is available to order immediately, with first deliveries scheduled for the beginning of August.

In recent days, Toyota revealed the latest edition of the model would be fitted with a solar-powered ventilation unit.

The manufacturer explained the device is more environmentally-friendly than traditional air conditioning systems, as the engine does not need to be on for it to work.
