There's something wafting through the air, and pedestrians on New York's hazy streets are breathing a fresh sigh of relief. Ozocar (866/696-5966;; $50 per hour), the first eco-luxury limo service in the United States, employs Lexus and Toyota hybrids that use 70 percent less fuel than your average gas-guzzler. Don't expect a no-frills ride—the super-sleek design, onboard laptops, Wi-Fi, and satellite radio keep the environmentally savvy jet set cruising down Fifth Avenue in style. Although the conscientious cars were just introduced in the Big Apple, they've been such a success that fleets will roll out in London by September, followed by service in five other cities across Europe and the States.


OZOcar is an eco-friendly chauffeured car service based out of New York City that also serves New Jersey, Connecticut, Long Island, Westchester, and upstate New York. Founded by Jordan Harris and Roo Rogers in 2005, the company’s fleet is made up of low-emission hybrid vehicles including the Toyota Prius, Toyota Camry, Toyota Highlander, and Lexus RX400h. All cars are black or silver, and are available either by the hour or by trip. Each car is equipped with Wi-Fi.
