It seems like a lifetime ago since Nick Marer blew us all away with his astounding 2.5L/100km drive around the Prius Challenge course.
Since then many have tried, but no one else has managed to topple Nick off his throne as the Bowater Toyota Eco Driving King!
As a reward for being such a nice bloke, and a very eco minded driver, we gave him the use of the Prius C for a week to go where ever he wanted. When he rocked up with his wife April and casually mentioned the Ruapuna Speedway, a few nervous chuckles were heard. Nick has also gained the unenviable reputation of a NZ land speed record holder in his own Prius, captured in all it's glory on a massive speeding ticket!
Fear not we thought, as Nick and April drove off into the sunset about to embark on an East Coast Prius Roadtrip.
April did the driving and was very impressed with the low fuel use, even compared to their bigger engined "normal" Prius.
