Listers Toyota Cheltenham is celebrating a record month as diligent motorists around Gloucestershire make the move to hybrid. With sales of cars in the UK dipping by 15.7% compared to 2017*, the industry has cause for concern. However in March, Toyota Cheltenham bucked the trend achieving an 18% uplift in vehicle sales compared to the general market, 63% of which were hybrid models.
Tim Huxley, centre principal at Listers Toyota Cheltenham, said: “I'm thrilled with the results of the past month and am delighted to see so many happy customers rate us highly for the customer service received when taking delivery of their cars. In the past couple of months, we’ve been sad to see other car dealerships in the town close their doors. However due to Toyota’s rapidly expanding range of cars we’re confident we’ve got something to suit all wants and wishes.
“Due to this success and the ongoing increase in interest in hybrid cars, I’m pleased to confirm we’re expanding our team. We’re looking for people to join our sales and service departments, and as one of the largest Toyota dealerships in Gloucestershire, we’re in a strong position to help develop younger people with our bespoke training programme.”
It’s an exciting time to join the Toyota family with a number of new cars for the UK market being announced. Toyota’s award-winning, self-charging hybrid models don’t need plugging in and are the perfect choice for motorists looking for something new.
Huxley added: “Although traditionally more expensive at initial purchase, hybrid cars are much cheaper to run. But, savvy buyers can take advantage of our scrappage scheme, which gives up to £4000 off any new car purchased when trading in a qualifying vehicle, making owning a new, efficient car much more affordable.
“Plus, by owning a hybrid, not only will you help reduce harmful emissions (without changing the way you drive), you’re able to immediately reduce outgoings on fuel and tax along with futureproofing your motoring costs which is unarguably a win-win situation for all drivers.”
