Though electric vehicles predate their gasoline-powered cousins and were once the most preferred cars on the road, they’ve since fallen out of mass popularity. But they are making a comeback, and one Telluride transportation company has just added an electric car to its fleet.

Mountain Limo, a regional taxi service, is now giving rides in a Mitsubishi i-MiEV. Mountain Limo owner Darcy Levtzow purchased the vehicle in May after the company got the contract to provide Dial-A-Ride service to Mountain Village from the Telluride Mountain Village Owners Association.

The car is small and quiet, and it’s the first fully electric vehicle to taxi passengers around Telluride and Mountain Village as part of Mountain Limo’s fleet. The car has a range of about 85 miles, and it will mainly be used with Dial-A-Ride to take passengers around town. Levtzow said the company is testing it to see how well it works and could possibly buy more electric vehicles in the future if they prove practical.

“All of this is really a learning experience, so we can tell other people about the car because there is not a lot of information out there [on electrics],” Levtzow said. “It’s been my dream to purchase an electric car so when I heard about the i-MiEV, I jumped at the chance.”
