Four green Volvos join taxi company’s fleet

Volvo dealership M.R. King & Sons has supplied Albies Taxis with four new V50 DRIVe models to join its ever-growing fleet of vehicles.

Albies Taxis now has 175 vehicles including 11 Volvo V50 DRIVes and a number of S80 Executives. The V50s can achieve 850 miles on one tank of diesel, returning 74.3mpg and putting out 99g/km of carbon dioxide.

Neil Kitchen, of Albies Taxis, said: 'We chose Volvo as not only does it give us the safe and secure ride we need for our customers but also it minimises the impact on the environment, with the low CO2 benefits and fuel economy, and will enhance our fleet.'

It has various contracts with Norfolk and Suffolk county councils and long-standing relationships with offshore companies in the area. Albies Taxis is also finalists in the 2012 Enterprise awards.

Adam Noble, of M.R. King & Sons in Quay Street, Halesworth, said: 'More and more companies are realising that the current Volvo range can bring huge benefits to their companies and an investment today secures long-term advantages for all concerned.'
