For millions of people around the world looking for a comfortable taxi journey, riding in a taxi became a more enjoyable experience – and better for the environment – in 2013 when a taxi company in Japan went all in and converted its entire fleet of conventional taxis to zero-emission Nissan LEAFs. It was the first step in a global electric taxi revolution.
Since then, taxi companies in Spain, The Netherlands, Hungary, the UK, Jordan, Mexico and Poland have all adopted zero-emission Nissan electric taxis. Today, Nissan taxis – LEAF, e-NV200 or both – are in service on five continents, 26 countries and 113 cities around the world.
Reduced emissions, significant savings and cheaper maintenance for taxi companies – plus a quiet and comfortable ride for passengers – are all benefits of electric taxis.
