2014 Toyota Prius Hybrid does 1 million km as taxi in Vienna

by SpeedLux

A Toyota Prius hybrid managed to run a distance of 1,000,000 km (621,371 miles) as a taxi recently in Vienna, Austria.

Despite the massive recalls that took place which affected the reputation of the model and the company over the last few years, Toyota is still considered by many across the world to produce the most reliable cars. An example to back up this statement is a Prius hybrid owned by the cab company called “EcoTaxi” that is located in Vienna. The vehicle managed to clock 1 milllion km since it went into service from the year 2007.

In fact the taxi company owns more than 200 Prius hybrids and the one which reached this impressive milestone wasn’t a financial burden according to them as it never went through any major repairs since acquired. EcoTaxi states that it didn’t have any “defects or glitches” throughout its service as a taxi car and it only went through the routine minimum maintenance required for the vehicle.

The company has that vehicle still in use and the in fact they have an ambitious target of reaching the milestone of 2M km mark in the next few years.
