The Toyota brand continues to triumph among today’s taxi trade. The new Toyota Auris Touring Sports Hybrid is built on excellent electric power and its Icon-Tech model is increasingly persuading drivers to opt for hybrid technology.
Driving for Greener Technology
From April this year, Bristol City Council stopped licensing private hire diesel vehicles. As a result, owner of Magans Taxis Ltd in Bristol, Mahad Jama, went in search of an alternative taxi. Upon his search he came across the Auris Touring Hybrid and decided this was the perfect taxi for him.
Mahad boasts an impressive fleet of 70 taxis at his company, with a mix of full wheelchair accessible and standard saloon taxis, all purchased from Cab Direct. We caught up with loyal customer, Mahad, to see how he’s been finding the Auris Icon-Tech.
Icon-tech Proves Innovation
From just £71.95 weekly +VAT, the Icon-tech specification is kitted out with all the mod cons you’d expect of a modern, well thought out vehicle. Standard features include 16” alloy wheels, reverse parking camera, leather steering wheel, cruise control and Toyota Touch® with Go navigation.
Mahad speaks confidently of the Auris Icon-tech, commenting: “This was definitely the right choice of taxi for me. I’ve bought six in total from Cab Direct.”
Being the biggest home to school transport provider for his local authority, Bristol City Council, having a strong workforce along with reliable and efficient cars is essential at Magans Taxis.
With world-leading hybrid technology, the Icon-Tech has low running costs and is extremely efficient to run. Mahad commented: “The Auris Icon-tech is good value for money and is very popular with my drivers because of its fuel consumption.”
This stylish and spacious estate makes every journey practical for both driver and passengers. Mahad said: “The size of the vehicle is perfect and the interior is very comfortable. I’d highly recommend the Icon-tech to other drivers in the taxi trade.”
Not only does Mahad recommended the Auris to fellow taxi drivers, he also speaks highly of the service received at Cab Direct. He said: “Cab Direct have always been very helpful, from arranging finance to the delivery of my vehicles, they’re efficient and the customer service is excellent.”
