Diaz & Cooper makes the green choice for corporate vehicle
Miami, FL - April 20, 2009 - Reinforcing their commitment to sustainability and green business practices, Diaz & Cooper has purchased a fuel-efficient Toyota Prius hybrid as its first corporate vehicle. The aptly-named Prius (its name means "to go before" in Latin) has become the standard-bearer in the industry as it was the first mass-produced hybrid vehicle and is currently the most fuel-efficient vehicle sold in the US.
"We wanted our first corporate vechicle to be both cost-effectve and green." says company Vice-President Todd Cooper, adding "For us, it was a no-brainer. The Prius is attractive, drives nicely, seats five, costs less than most comparable sedans and you just can't beat the MPG. Add to that the Prius' reputation as a leader in revolutionizing fuel efficiency in the auto industry, and we just could not resist."
