New York's yellow taxis to go green

New York's yellow cabs are to become hybrid cars within five years under a scheme to make the city the greenest in the US.

Michael Bloomberg, the city's mayor, announced the shift to hybrid technology – which powers cars using a combination of fuel and ­electric batteries – in a bid to cut emissions by more than half over the next ­decade.

Of the 13,000 yellow cabs on New York streets, only 375 are hybrids. Mr Bloomberg said that number would rise to 1,000 by the end of 2008 and a further 20 per cent of the fleet would go hybrid each subsequent year until 2012. The estimated 50,000 other licensed cabs in the city will not as yet be required to make the shift.

Mr Bloomberg, a potential presidential candidate, said the government had failed to act on fuel efficiency.
