Oxford Welcomes First Zero Emissions Private Hire Vehicle

Oxford is an area renowned for its love for luxurious travel, with the streets of Oxford full of stunning vehicles, many of which have been hired by residents and tourists.

Being a bit of a hotspot for vehicle hire, Oxford has this week welcomed its first fully electric private hire vehicle, helping it achieve its ambitions of becoming a ‘Zero Emission Zone’.

This has come in the form of a Tesla Model X, managed by local operator, Vert2Go. Headed up by two brothers, the business will focus on corporate clients initially. This means covering trips such as airports transfers, business trips and the likes.

Robert McDermott, managing director of Vert2Go, said: “Living in Oxford and supporting the council’s low-emissions policies, we realised the time was right to bring a fully electric, zero emissions private hire company.”

Tom Hayes, cabinet member for Zero Carbon Oxford, is equally as pleased to welcome the incredible Tesla to Oxford: “Just a few weeks after Oxford received its first zero emissions-capable black cab, the city is now going to see its first electric private taxi on our roads.

“I’m delighted the council has been able to support this new development, and I’m sure we’ll see many more licensed operators going electric” he says.
