Nissan Leaf Global Taxi Fleet Expands in Zurich – WOT on Motor Trend

The urban stop-and-go duty cycle may be one of the least efficient environments for conventionally-powered vehicles, but it’s one of the most ideal environments for electric vehicles. So it’s no wonder that the Nissan Leaf has been pressed into service as a taxi around the world in Amsterdam, Mexico City, Sao Paulo, Tokyo and New York. You can now add the Swiss city of Zurich to that list.

Thanks to the efforts of Swiss young adults from 20-30 involved in the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Community. The fleet of Nissan Leafs in Zurich will start with 10 vehicles, with 10 more Leaf taxis being added later in 2013. By 2015, the plan is to have a network of quick-chargers throughout the city that would allow the batteries to be charged from 30 to 80 percent in 15 minutes.
