“Green Planet Cabs” was created in January 2008 but derived from a combination of happenings during the two plus years prior to that.
Firstly the founder, already in the transport industry for over 28 years, whilst looking into the running costs of his fleet, implemented his own speed limits of a maximum 100 kph. for light vehicles (legal limit 120 kph) and 70 to a maximum of 80 kph. for heavy commercial vehicles where here in South Africa very few drivers adhere to the legal speed limits far less drive below them. However by fitting onboard management systems we were eventually able to enforce them with benefits both in Safety and Costs. This started our Company off in a Green direction which at that time was just starting to catch people’s interest but which soon became one of our sales slogans.
When the Prius Hybrid was introduced and we were able to purchase one, it became immediately obvious that it was the car to take us into the future. Its low carbon emissions and fuel consumption are exceptional and hopefully others will follow Toyota’s example.
Our experience gave us the Idea to create a truly eco friendly cab company, Pure Hybrids, A luxury the World cannot do without. ………….Until something better comes along.
