Hybrid Taxis Hit New York City

Readers will remember our earlier articles, “The Truth About Hybrid Cars: They Donít Save You Money” and “Everything You Wanted to Know About Hybrids.” Today New York City announced a mini-“fleet” of hybrid taxis. Currently there are only six, but officials state that the entire fleet of 13,000 cabs may be replaced within the next five years.
