One Year on, Cornwall’s Electric Nissan LEAF Taxi Fleet Have Driven 150,000 Miles

There are many myths surrounding electric cars. One is that electric cars aren’t suitable for life outside of the big city. Another suggests that electric cars aren’t useful for fleets which cover high numbers of miles per year, like delivery firms and taxi cabs.

Cornish taxi firm C&C Taxis proves both those notions wrong. Based in the beautiful Cornish countryside in the South West of the UK, C&C Taxis was the first taxi cab operator in the UK to add an all-electric Nissan LEAF hatchback to its fleet a year ago.

With a DC rapid charge station located at the company headquarters, the firm, which operates in and around St. Austell, soon found the LEAF was a perfect fit for the majority of its fares. While the company initially started with just one electric LEAF in its fleet of ten cars, today it has five — and plans to add Nissan’s all-electric e-NV200 Evalia minivan to its expanding electric vehicle fleet when the minivan goes on sale later this year.
