Operators who are members of Green Ride Global get discounts and free delivery in a special deal announced July 7.

TORONTO — An increasing number of GREEN RIDE GLOBAL livery companies are meeting the needs of their eco-conscious customers while saving thousands of dollars per year through the transition to the new FORD FUSION HYBRID L livery sedan by ROYALE LIMOUSINE MANUFACTURERS.

The Hybrid L is a Ford Fusion chassis that has been extended six inches to allow for luxury-standard legroom. Its combination of legroom and 40-plus mpg has made it the reigning standard for combining fuel savings with luxury amenities in a chauffeured vehicle.

“The Hybrid-L is saving each company [about] 21 miles per gallon and 23 tons of CO2 compared to the Lincoln Town Car,” said Ian Lipton, COO of Green Ride Global.

In an exclusive deal with Royale, Green Ride Global members also receive a $500 discount per vehicle plus free delivery anywhere in the continental U.S, a savings of more than $2,000 per vehicle.

“We chose to offer this deal to Green Ride Global members on a exclusive basis because they are widely recognized as the leading authority for translating ecological benefits and analyses in a quantitative manner,” said Steve Edelmann, Royale’s director of sales. “More and more corporations are asking their transportation providers to reduce their carbon footprint in a real and measured way, and the Hybrid-L allows them to achieve this.”
