It is really good news that there is already a state funding programme for electric commercial vehicles – informed Gábor Trybek, commercial director of Business Lease Hungary Kft. He told that the market is still a bit reluctant to adopt more expensive smart systems, such as the Traffic Sign Recognition System or the adaptive cruise control technology. As regards extra features, integrated cooling when the vehicle doesn’t move is very popular. Many features that are considered to be extras in passenger cars such as the lane keep and lane departure assist systems or sleep warning can also be ordered for commercial vehicles.

However, active and passive safety are increasingly important too. Mr Varga told: all Toyota models come with active safety systems and driving assistance technologies as a standard feature, which are collectively called Toyota Safety Sense. //
