More Electric Taxi News – C&C Taxis’ Nissan Leaf Taxi they nicknamed Wizzy has just done 100,000 miles! Not bad, since the car only entered service in July 2013.

What’s more, the battery is still showing 12 bars of capacity, despite the mileage and having been rapid charged more than 1,700 times.

The car is even on its original set of brake pads!

C&C Taxis have since added five more Nissan Leafs and a Nissan eNV200 Combi van.

Mark Richards, C&C Taxis’ fleet manager reckons that each electric vehicle saves the business more than £8,000 per year in fuel and maintenance.

He said: “It’s no exaggeration to say Wizzy has transformed our business”. “The savings we’re now making across the fleet are phenomenal”.

With figures like these it looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more electric taxis on the road very soon.
