Officials in the Iranian capital Tehran have unveiled a generation of eco-friendly taxis.

The new cars run on both electricity and gasoline and can help cut down on fuel consumption and reduce air pollution. Officials plan to make 10,000 such vehicles operational by the end of 2018.

Iran’s capital is known for its poor air quality, because of an altitude ranging from 1,100-1,700 meters above sea level in a basin surrounded by mountains and also due to exhaust fumes from more than four million cars plying the roads of the city.
