LONDON, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

A 2010 Honda CR-Z has hit the impressive landmark of clocking up 100,000 miles
in just three years.

The car is part of a ten-strong fleet made up purely of Honda Hybrids , also
including Jazz and Insight models, which has racked up an amazing half a
million miles since 2010.

The fleet is owned and run by Renewable Solutions UK, national award-winning
designers and installers of Renewable Energy Systems for business and domestic
customers.

With the cars used on a daily basis in its work up and down the country, Mike
Lowes, Managing Director of Renewable Solutions UK comments: "Honda hybrids
are a perfect fit for our business, with the efficiency of battery power and
the many environmental and financial benefits this brings. The fleet has
worked very hard, every day, for both short and long journeys, but we've only
ever had to pay for standard servicing and wear and tear costs, and no major
breakdowns. They just keep going without skipping a beat!"

The fleet has been built up over the last three years with all of the cars
bought from Greenacre Honda in Blackburn. Mike Lowes continues: "We have
complete free rein in what we buy and where we buy it from, so the fact that
we stick with Honda is testament to the trust we have in the brand. Honda
hybrids are a reliable, no-compromise solution to our needs, and Greenacre
have offered us great customer service and value for money."

Lee Wheeler, Manager of Corporate Operations at Honda (UK) comments: "We know
that there are plenty of Honda hybrids out there racking up the miles, but
it's always great to hear directly from customers who are seeing the strong
benefits they deliver to fleets, even at mileages higher than usually seen
with hybrid cars."

Renewable Solutions UK offers a complete range of Sustainable Energy Systems
to domestic, commercial and agricultural clients. The company installs Wind
Turbines, Solar Panels, Biomass boilers and Heat pumps. Working across the
country and internationally, it offers a range of tariffs, grants and funding
solutions to clients.

Honda (UK)'s range of petrol-electric hybrids, which currently includes the
CR-Z, Insight and Jazz models, are an ideal solution for fleet customers, with
their excellent environmental credentials and many financial benefits
including fuel cost savings, zero road tax, congestion charge exemption and
