At the British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards, which took place at the Motor Insurance Repair Research centre in Berkshire, the Toyota Prius was named the most secure green car.
Mike Briggs, Thatcham's Vehicle Security Manager, said, "Many congratulations to Toyota who have held on tightly to the crown for the most secure Green Car for the second year running and remain the only winners of this recently introduced category. As the top performing Prius T3 proves, car owners can do their bit for the environment without the need to compromise on vehicle security."
The British Insurance Vehicle Security Awards are designed to raise awareness of best practice in vehicle security. Vehicles are assessed according to the New Vehicle Security Rating Scheme (NVSR), with points awarded under the categories of 'theft of' and 'theft from' the vehicle. The winners are the models achieving the highest score in each category.
