Millers Citax, a UK taxi company in the town of Preston, will be taking delivery of ten LPG powered Proton Persona Ecologic to join their growing taxi fleet.
Commenting on the purchase, Miller Citax’s Managing Director Peter Osbourn said "This is the first time that we’ve invested in Proton, but we were really impressed by the savings that we can make – especially as the cost of fuel rockets."
Simon Park, General Manager Sales & Marketing for Proton Cars, said: “For drivers clocking up high mileage, the vast cost savings on fuel are a compelling reason for businesses to consider the Proton Persona ecoLogic when updating its fleet. Even the average UK driver doing 10,000 miles per year could save over £500 per year on their fuel costs, simply by switching to LPG.”
Graham Jones, Managing Director for Sharoe Green Garage added: “We are delighted to be involved with such a well respected company as Millers Citax, and the investment that they are making in Proton’s Persona ecoLogics is testament to the manufacturer’s build quality and reliability.
“As part of the deal, Sharoe Green Garage will be looking after the routine servicing of the new fleet, as well as providing aftercare for any other issues that arise. Proton’s cars are known for their reliability and robust build, and whilst we don’t expect the cars to be off the road, aftercare is just as important as the purchase process. We will be working closely with the drivers to ensure any down-time is kept to an absolute minimum.
“Running at a fraction of the cost of either petrol or diesel, and combining both the economical and ecological savings of LPG fuel, the Proton Persona ecoLogic delivers the best of both worlds making it the ideal choice for cost and carbon conscious car owners and businesses. We look forward to helping more local companies enhance their fleet with this excellent choice of car.”
