Ride a Hybrid cab this Earth Day
April 19th, 2013 in news

Each year, on April 22nd, the world dedicates one day to showing support for environmental protection. Some of our taxi drivers in San Diego are doing their part to help the enviroment by driving hybrids instead of the older, gas gussling Crown Victory. An iconic Yellow Cab vehicle, but not the most enviromentaly friendly.

These Hybrids are able to save drivers over a third of what they usually spend on gas. To improve fuel mileage and exhaust emissions, a hybrids electric engine does most of the work of starting the car and getting it moving from a complete stop, sometime all the way up to 35 miles per hour. Once the vehicle is moving, the gas engine starts up and gives the car more power in addition to recharging the electric motor's batteries.
