HERTZ is doing its bit for the environment with the introduction of the petrol/electric hybrid Toyota Prius sedan to its Australian fleet.

The car can travel up to 100km on just 4.4 litres of petrol, and up to 1,000km on one tank of fuel. It emits up to 55 per cent less carbon monoxide than conventionally-powered vehicles of similar size.

When the vehicle is accelerating it is powered by electricity, until it reaches cruise speed, when it automatically switches to petrol. Then, when the car begins to decelerate or brake, it switches back to battery, which minimises fuel consumption by automatically selecting either battery or petrol, whichever is most efficient at the time.
