Ecolimo use the Toyota Prius with the smallest carbon footprint (up to 85%* less emissions than your average chauffer driven vehicle) * according to the green vehicle guide. For even more comfort why not request the Lexus GS450h.

For a small surcharge Ecolimo offers the Lexus GS450h luxury sports sedan, an electric/petrol hybrid. Importantly, the Lexus GS450h produces 45% less carbon emissions than the average limousine. The Hybrid Synergy Drive consists of a 3.5-litre all-aluminium V-6, producing 292-horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque, and two electric motors; providing a quiet stress-free trip to the airport and around town.

How are the hybrid cars able to save on emissions?

Regenerative Braking. The electric motor applies resistance to the drivetrain causing the wheels to slow down. In return, the energy from the wheels turns the motor, which functions as a generator, converting energy normally wasted during coasting and braking into electricity, which is stored in a battery until needed by the electric motor. Electric Motor Drive/Assist. The electric motor provides additional power to assist the engine in accelerating, passing, or hill climbing. Automatic Start/Shutoff. Automatically shuts off the engine when the vehicle comes to a stop and restarts it when the accelerator is pressed. This prevents wasted energy from idling.
