greentomatocars adds electric vehicles to its fleet23 February 2012
greentomatocars proudly electrifies its leading green fleet with two state-of-the-art 100% electric Renault Fluence Z.E. cars. This trial will take place over a 3-month period and heralds greentomatocars' introduction of the private hire industry's first zero emission vehicles onto London's streets. It comes as a boost to the capital as it struggles to meet air quality targets, currently ranking as one of the worst polluted cities in Europe.
Co-Founder and Managing Director, Jonny Goldstone, said, "We're delighted to be taking delivery of the industry's first two EVs and already know that our clients will be as impressed by their performance and credentials as we are. In 2011, greentomatocars became the first company to offer environmentally friendly alternatives to executive cars and people carriers, by adding biodiesel-fuelled vehicles to our blend of cars. So it's especially pleasing to kick off 2012 with another first by offering our excellent EV service to our most forward-thinking clients."
