Toshiba Replacing Vehicle Fleet With Hybrids

Over the next three years, Toshiba America Medical Systems will replace its fleet of sedans for its sales and service teams with Toyota Camry Hybrids, Industry Week reports.

The company hopes the move will help Toshiba Corp. reach its goal of reducing its energy-originated CO2 emissions by 25 percent by 2010 as well as non-CO2 greenhouse gas emissions by 35 percent by 2010.

With the hybrids, Toshiba expects to reduce fleet CO2 emissions by 25,000 pounds and save approximately $3,000 – $4,000 in fuel savings over the lifecycle of each vehicle. The size of the company’s fleet was not immediately available from a Toshiba spokesperson.

“The hybrids will take us closer to our goal of reducing emissions in logistics from company cars and freight by one percent each year,” said Paul Biggins, director of Regulatory Affairs and head of the TAMS’ Environmental Affairs Committee.
