NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Sabertec, makers of Blade, a new environmental technology that easily attaches to a tailpipe of a car, SUV, light duty truck or hybrid to reduce vehicle emissions, recently partnered with Exclusive Sedan Service, a chauffeured transportation company serving greater Los Angeles.
Exclusive Sedan now offers eco-Luxury transportation services that use Blade on a portion of its fleet of Town Cars, limousines, and SUVs, to help reduce each vehicle’s carbon footprint while helping improve air quality in Los Angeles.
Exclusive Sedan, winner of LCT’s 2007 Operator of the Year Award, has equipped 30% of its core fleet with Blade and intends to install Blades on more cars. Clients already are taking advantage of the services. Exclusive Sedan says the percentage of riders who ask for an eco-option has been increasing over the past few years.
Blade reduces 57% of greenhouse gases and air pollution, and drastically reduces toxic particulate matter — one of the biggest culprits in asthma and other respiratory illnesses. In addition, Blade’s technology improves fuel economy up to five miles per gallon in laboratory tests.
Exclusive’s eco-conscious clientele can feel good about their luxury rides because of Blade. The new service is already being embraced by celebrities David Arquette and Ben Harper, who are fans of Blade and who used Exclusive Sedan’s eco-luxury fleet in December to transport guests to and from the launch of their eco-fashion line, Propr.
Blade works in three different ways: 1) acts as a filter — capturing toxic particulate material (PM) and other solid inorganic emissions that would otherwise end up in the air; 2) accelerates the start-up of a vehicle’s catalytic converter, which lowers emissions; 3) increases volumetric efficiency of the engine by helping it burn more efficiently, thereby increasing fuel economy and reducing CO2.

Based in Austin, Texas, Sabertec makes environmental products that reduce fossil-fuel-burning engine emissions that are known contributors to global warming and health consequences such as cancer, strokes, and respiratory diseases.
