Nissan Leaf Fleet Joins London’s Electric Taxi Ranks

Electric cars make a lot of sense for use as taxis.

Taxis are typically driven in cities, where air pollution is often a problem. They tend to do frequent short runs punctuated by stops. And passengers tend to like a smoother, quieter taxi ride.

London taxi firm eConnect Cars has realized all these factors, setting up an all-electric taxi fleet of Nissan Leafs.

Seven cars are currently on the fleet, and another fourteen are joining soon–one of just a handful of companies offering such a service.

A proliferation of diesel-powered cars, taxis and buses has put some of London’s streets among the worst in Europe for pollution–so the importance of electric taxis, with their zero local emissions, cannot be understated.
