Mexico City receives fleet of electric Nissan Leaf taxis

October 1st, 2011 by Thomson Reuters

Mexico City has received a fleet of electric Nissan Leaf taxis, which can travel about 160 kilometres per charge.

The first phase of the taxi programme delivered 100 all-electric Nissan leaf taxis.  This will be followed by a delivery of a further 500 electric vehicles.

Nissan has provided a charging point in the city centre, which charges the electric taxi in 30 minutes using solar energy.

Nissan estimates that 100 Nissan Leaf taxis operating in the city centre will reduce daily carbon emissions by five tonnes.
