First Hybrids, Now Plug-Ins? London Taxi Firm Aims High

Read the full story at Treehugger.

The website of UK based EVUK – the Campaign for Real, Long-range Electric Vehicles – recently carried an intriguing report that plug-in hybrid taxis may soon be heading for the streets of London.

The report references an article in the Guardian which interviews Tom Pakenham, co-founder of Green Tomato Cars, who were previously reported on by Tree Hugger here.

Apparently not content with their status as the only 100% hybrid taxi fleet in the city (possibly the world?), they are planning on further greening their vehicles by converting them to plug-in technology. Unfortunately, neither the article nor the company’s website gave details of when these conversions might happen, so Tree Hugger contacted Tom directly for more details.
