Media Advisory: Toronto takes another step toward becoming the greenest city in North America
As part of Toronto’s commitment to greening its fleet, Mayor David Miller and the Toronto Atmospheric Fund will unveil an innovative pilot program designed to test plug-in hybrid vehicles that can double the all-electric range of conventional hybrid vehicles.

Date: Thursday, May 24
Time: 10:30 a.m.
Place: Northwest entrance to Nathan Phillips Square (directly south of children’s playground).
Speakers: Mayor David Miller, TAF Board Chair and city councillor Shelley Carroll, Hymotion President Ricardo Bazzarella.

One or more conventional hybrid vehicles refitted by Ontario-based Hymotion to allow for plug-in charging will be featured.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years Toronto has won more than 50 awards for quality and innovation in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
