Green Fleet Awards

We are delighted to announce that eConnect cars have won this years ‘Private Hire/Taxi Company of the Year’ category at the prestigious Green Fleet Awards 2014.

eConnect cars operates one of the leading chauffeur-driven car services in London operating an all-electric fleet of top of the range Nissan Leaf Teknas.

The Green Fleet Awards, styled as “the industry’s most coveted awards for environmental fleet management and green motoring”, were held at the Heritage Motor Centre Museum in Gaydon, Warwickshire, on the 30th October. They aim to highlight and give recognition to “individuals and organisations which strive to reduce the environmental impact of fleet transport through innovation”.

The ‘Private Hire/Taxi Company of the Year’ category rewards companies that incorporate a strong environmental policy within their business and are dedicated to cutting CO2 emissions within their fleet.

Curbing vehicle emissions and improving air quality especially in major cities has become a priority for many countries. The move towards zero emissions travel is growing momentum with record sales of alternatively fuelled vehicles already recorded this year.

Colin Boyton, Sales & Marketing Manager GreenFleet, said, “By using a fleet of zero emission EVs that are recharged from renewable energy sources, and training their drivers on the workings of the car so they can talk to customers about the technology, is innovative in itself.

The fact that eConnect Cars also offers CO2 savings data on journey comparisons makes them worthy winners of the GreenFleet Private Hire/Taxi Company of the Year for 2014.

Previous winners of the award have included some of the biggest private hire companies in the UK and Europe.

It was understandably a proud night for Alistair Clarke, eConnect cars owner and Managing Director, who set up the business in January 2014.

I am absolutely thrilled that we have won this award. It recognises the ambition and commitment we at eConnect cars show towards our customers and their travel needs.

Our mission is to deliver an effective high quality chauffeur-driven all electric fleet service in London. We believe that electric vehicles are the future in the Capital and all major cities where quality of service, wellbeing and better air quality can all be achieved without compromise. It’s brilliant to be receiving recognition for our vision and hard work”.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my team at eConnect cars, who do an excellent job, for all their hard work and congratulate all the winners at this years Awards.
