Tallinn Municipal Police renewed their car fleet with more than eight Toyota C-HR hybrid cars. The new vehicles will be made available to patrol crews and regional inspectors working in the districts.
According to Aivar Toompere, Head of the Tallinn Municipal
Police Board, the Mupo fleet needed to be renewed, and the
important criteria for making the selection were: car safety,
comfort and economy-friendly..
"Our crews move around the clock in Tallinn and for many Mupo
employees - car is primarily a place for work, where most of
working time is spent," Toompere said, adding that it was
therefore decided in favor of SUVs. According to Toompere,
environmental saving was an important aspect when purchasing
new cars, because together with other city instances, municipal
police also wants to contribute creating and maintaining a
greener urban environment.
"This is the first time we have purchased hybrid cars to our
car fleet. I hope that new Toyota hybrids will last well as
work cars in everyday use, and we can consider replacing our
other cars with hybrids in the future, "Toompere said.
According to Toompere, mainly significant fuel and maintenance
cost savings speak in favor of hybrid cars. Currently, it is
planned to hand over the next five hybrid SUVs to Mupo in
December this year.
"I am very pleased if we can contribute to a greener urban
environment and customers who are considering purchasing hybrid
cars in their car fleet - I am sure that the new Toyota will
meet Mupo's expectations," said Margus Nõmmik, Chairman of the
Board of Amserv Auto.
According to Nõmmik, a self-loading hybrid car drives up to 50
percent primarily on electricity and fuel consumption is
significantly lower. According to Nõmmik, it is also important
that the Toyota C-HR is equipped with high-level safety
technology, which makes urban traffic much safer.
