sharjah taxi announces it has converted 65 per cent of fleet to hybrid vehicles

Sharjah Taxi has announced that it is looking to increase the number of its hybrid vehicle fleet.

Sharjah Taxi had previously completed hybrid vehicle conversions to 65 per cent of its vehicle fleet in the Eastern Region, resulting in significantly reduced pollution caused by vehicle exhausts in the area.

The company now aims to reach 100 per cent of hybrid vehicle conversion of its entire fleet of cars, reported the state news agency, WAM.

Khalid Al Kindi, executive director of Sharjah Taxi, stated: “Converting regular fleet vehicles to hybrid vehicles makes results in a substantial and effective contribution to securing an environmentally-friendly environment and providing a safe, clean, attractive, and sustainable environment that enhances the reputation and prestige of the emirate of Sharjah. Such a step is consistent with the directions of the Sharjah government and is based on the vision and directives of HH Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah. The emirate, in all fields and sectors, strives to remain environmentally friendly and eco-conscious, according to the highest standards and specifications.”

He added: “As part of our plan and strategy, we seek to convert about 60 per cent of the Sharjah Taxi fleet operating at Sharjah International Airport and Sharjah City to environmentally-friendly hybrid vehicles by the end of the current year.”

Al Kindi highlighted the ongoing global issue of environmental protection and preservation, and how Sharjah and State institutions have proactively acted with these goals in mind. ‘’Sharjah boasts manifestations of a clean environment throughout the emirate, in workspaces, institutions, and public places, and continues to strive to keep the Emirate free of various forms of pollution,” he said.
