London could save 208 thousand tonnes of CO2 emissions if it turns black cabs green

Turning all London’s 22,000 black cabs electric could save 4,000 tonnes of CO2 pollution every week, a study by law carbon motor show EcoVelocity has revealed.

The figure would be tripled if all of the capital’s minicabs followed suit. EcoVelocity will run from September 8 to 11 at Battersea Power Station in south London and features the latest electric, hybrid and low CO2-emitting cars by top brands like Citroen, Fiat, Honda and Mia Electric, as well as offering test drivers on a special circuit.

Wiles Greenworld, the London-based office supplies distributor with a fleet that runs on alternative fuel has been pioneering environmental best practice for a number of years. It too is exploring the opportunity to implement electric vehicles in its London distribution.
