Our Green Eco-Cabs
Transport represents about 29% of the UK’s CO2 emissions, and within this sector, the most significant contributors are road transport (70%) and aviation (22%). Emissions from transport have increased since 1990, and reducing them is likely to require both technical innovation and new regulation to decrease demand.
Cloud Cars are helping...
58% Less CO2 • 97.8% Less NOX • ZERO PM10
Our hybrid cars have the lowest CO2 emissions in their class. Our latest 4th generation Prius cars have emissions of 89g/km and make up 100% of our fleet.
16 journeys of 10km per day in a Standard Black Cab equates to 194kg of CO2 per week.
Cloudcars would reduce this by 124kg per week.
Over a year, this amounts to a saving of
6 Metric Tonnes or equivalent to the energy requirements of an average house for 12 months or your computer for 20 years!
Our cars produce absolutely NO PM10's - (That's particulate matter of 10 microns or less). What does that mean? Well PM10's are really harmful! They are particles so small that the body has great difficulty in getting rid of PM10's once you've breathed them in! It's a major carcinogen and even in less extreme cases - it's a major cause of asthma and other respiratory diseases. So CloudCars are a great way of cleaning up the Nottingham air.
NOX - Various Oxides of Nitrogen are also greenhouse gases, and a significant cause of respiratory problems in urban areas which, it's argued, may contribute to as many as 24,000 premature deaths in the UK. NOX is also the gas responsible for photochemical haze and smog as well as to the creation of 'acid rain' which is responsible for damage to forestry as well as to the fabric of our architectural heritage.Our cars produce an astonishing 98.7% LESS NOX over 200 miles and NO PM10's. - There's a breath of fresh air!
