The CEO of mobility company, eCabs, has announced an ambitious plan to transform its fleet into an entirely green one by 2025.

Matthew Bezzina shared his company’s target in the presence of Miriam Dalli, Minister for Energy, Enterprise, and Sustainable Development, who welcomed the investment as a signal by the private sector that is willing to be part of the Government’s vision to decarbonise the economy by 2050.

“The project to electrify our whole fleet and install all the required infrastructure will mean a significant investment by eCabs, which does require equal commitment from the Government to ensure that the infrastructure to support electric mobility be implemented,” he said. “This support given to this vision is welcome and encouraging.”

The process for eCabs has already begun with the introduction of a number of electric vehicles that will join its existing hybrid vehicles fleet, including models from KIA, Hyundai and Citroen.

Mr Bezzina shared that the challenges of 2020 were numerous, such as the restrictions imposed during lockdown, which “sent our industry into a spiral, but on a more positive note, less traffic meant reduced air pollution and cleaner air for everyone.”

“The country, although eerily deserted, was more liveable than it was for ages,” he continued. “This strengthened our resolve to cement our ongoing vision towards becoming even more sustainable and inspired our eCabs Greener Future initiative.”

The CEO adds that “we are seeking more sustainable and cleaner operations in everything we are doing, including the future development of our owned spaces as well as a sustainable framework, which includes incentivising and supporting our partner drivers to follow in these footsteps.”
