Europe: Dutch EV Taxi Service Racks Up 250,000 Km

At the end of 2011, the Dutch capital, Amsterdam, started its first electric taxi program, with a total of twelve Nissan Leafs, which included such amenities as onboard Wi-Fi and a tablet for browsing the web as you are taken to your destination.

The company doing all this is called Taxi-E, and in the six months since the service has been initiated, the twelve cars racked up around 250,000 Km (155,000 miles). The service has been greatly appreciated by locals, and so, it is set to expand this coming September, adding a yet unspecified number of additional taxis to the lineup, before reaching their goal of having 450 of them by 2015.
