Prius too small as limo

April 19, 2007

Hybrid limousines are not allowed to escort people within the city limits of Toronto, Canada, the Toronto Star reports. In Toronto there is reportedly a bylaw that stipulates vehicle size, trunk space and passenger legroom restricts the use of the most popular and energy-efficient hybrid cars.Limousine companies are not permitted to add vehicles such as the Toyota Prius to their fleets–the same car that Los Angeles-based Eco-Limo used to bring Leonardo DiCaprio and other Hollywood stars to this year's Academy Awards ceremony.The fuel-efficient cars emit 65 percent less carbon dioxide than a Lincoln Town Car limo.According to the Toronto Star, the city said Prius limousines don't comply with size rules under a municipal bylaw, which considers a limo a luxury vehicle that can carry up to five passengers. The bylaw also stipulates that a stretch limo must be provided for every four sedans in a fleet.
