Little’s adds Lexus hybrids to Glasgow chauffeur fleet
Glasgow-based chauffeur company Little’s has introduced the first hybrid vehicles to its fleet, with the arrival of five Lexus GS300h petrol-electric executive saloons.
The hybrids are designed to strengthen the company’s environmental profile, said managing director Heather Matthews: “More and more of our clients place an emphasis on environmental performance and sustainability, issues that we can address with the highly efficient GS 300h. By running these vehicles we are also able to strengthen the ‘green’ qualities of our own operations.”

Stuart Ferma, manager, Toyota and Lexus fleet services, added: “Little’s decision to take the GS300h is an acknowledgement of how Lexus successfully combines its advanced, highly efficient hybrid technology with contemporary luxury and refinement.” The new cars were supplied through Lexus Glasgow.
Little’s has chosen the SE version of the GS300h, which comes as standard with dual-zone climate control, electrically adjustable seats, a 12-speaker audio system with DAB tuner, LED ambient cabin lighting and automatic headlights and windscreen wipers. The model’s full hybrid powertrain allows it to run in all-electric EV mode in city traffic, reducing tailpipe emissions and fuel consumption to zero.
Established almost 50 years ago, Little’s has an international reach, co-ordinating chauffeur services in worldwide locations. It specialises in corporate travel, including airport and rail transfers and event delegate transport for groups of all sizes.
