Could you tell a Hybrid from an everyday car?
Are you interested in finding out what all the fuss is about and understanding more about hybrid and it's benefits?

Toyota have asked us to find 7 of you to attend an exclusive event day they are putting on for Mumsnet, all about Hybrid cars at Toyota HQ in Epsom.

Here's what Toyota have to say, "Toyota have been making hybrid cars for over 12 years and have sold over 2.4 million Prius Hybrid models to date, but there are still many myths surrounding this technology, like do hybrids need special fuel? (No!) Does a Hybrid save me road tax? (Yes!) How does it feel to drive a Hybrid?
To bust these myths and answer any questions Mumsnetters may have about hybrid cars we're holding an event at our HQ in Epsom Surrey."

The event day will be held on Thursday 6th February from 10am-3pm. The day will include the following:

- Welcome presentation
- An accompanied test drive/treasure hunt (with prizes of course!)
- Lunch
- Introduction to Toyota's ECO HQ

Everyone who attends the event day will receive a goody bag as a thank you for attending.

Those who are selected will be required to leave their feedback and answer a few questions on a thread on Mumsnet during and after the event day.
Film crew will also be in attendance to capture footage and take photos throughout the day.
Attendees will also be asked to tweet about their experience throughout the day.

This event is open to all Mumsnetters. Unfortunately you will not be able to bring your children or partners with you on the day. Attendees will have to make their own way to the event but free parking will be available.

This would be perfect after taking part in the Toyota positive filming I fell in love with the Prius. So would love to learn more about hybrid cars.

Is it necessary yo stay for the whole day? I could get there for 10 but would need to leave by 2:15 to get back for the school tun. If that is possible, I'd be interested, otherwise I can't.
