Irish Defence Forces investment in new Toyota Land Cruisers

Toyota Land Cruiser has been selected as the vehicle of choice for the Irish Defence Forces for the next 4 years. The Defence Forces have confirmed an order for 280 new Toyota Land Cruisers, with first vehicles arriving in late 2019.

Land Cruiser which is synonymous with toughness and the ability to perform in some of the worlds harshest conditions – has proven its capabilities over the decades with organizations such as the UN, the Red Cross and Medecins Sans Frontieres. Toyota Land Cruiser was chosen for its quality, durability and proven reliability as well as its comprehensive customer support network both in Ireland and worldwide.

Land Cruisers will be enabled to operate sophisticated on-board IT and communications equipment commensurate with the requirements of a modern defence force. All Land Cruisers are also fully compliant with Euro 6 emissions guidelines which will contribute to lower fuel costs and reduced CO2 emissions. This significant investment reflects the Irish Government’s commitment to strengthening the operational capability the Irish armed forces.

Steve Tormey, CEO of Toyota Ireland commented:

“Toyota Ireland is delighted to be chosen as 4x4 supplier to the Irish Defence Forces for the coming 4 years. The Toyota Land Cruiser has proven itself to be an incredibly tough and reliable vehicle since its introduction into Ireland in 1973. It’s off-road ability and durability is legendary. As a 100% Irish owned company, Toyota Ireland welcome with great pride this opportunity to work with and support the Irish Defence Forces”.

SIMIs figures also show the continued demise of diesel as Irish drivers move towards more electrified motoring solutions such as self-charging hybrids. At Toyota we have positioned ourselves as the driving force of this change as in Ireland, with 80% of all Toyota cars sold being self-charging hybrid.”
