We are close to seeing the iconic London taxi going full electric as TfL plan to set up a scheme enabling drivers to switch their fossil fuel vehicle over to a zero-emission electric vehicle.
From TfL press release
- Dedicated points for taxis to help iconic black cabs go green
- Plans will encourage drivers to ditch the most polluting vehicles and go electric to help clean up London's filthy air
- Customer friendly scheme means drivers can pay as they go using a credit or debit card, without having to sign up to membership
- Transport for London (TfL) has appointed the suppliers who will provide the rapid charging points that the capital needs to make it easier than ever before to use electric vehicles. After a competitive bidding process, the Centrica Consortium, BluepointLondon, Chargemaster, Electricity Supply Board (ESB) and Fastned were successful. They will fund, maintain, operate and install the network.
