YOKOHAMA, Japan – 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.
With proven business results and cost savings, zero-emission Nissan taxis are the smarter choice, bringing Nissan Intelligent Mobility to customers and taxi liveries worldwide. Through electric vehicles, Intelligent Mobility is Nissan's way of transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into wider society.
