There are Nissan electric taxis in 113 cities in 26 countries on five continents. A fleet that has saved almost 100 thousand tons of CO2 emissions. And 25 million pounds in fuel.
If Leaf is the best selling electric car in the world, it is no wonder that Nissan is still the brand preferred by taxi operators when they want to partially or totally electrify their fleets.
In this area, the kick-off was given by a Japanese company which in 2013 decided to completely replace its offer of conventional taxis by a fleet of Leaf. Since then, Leaf and e-NV200 have devoted themselves to this type of service in no less than 113 of 26 countries spread across five continents.
Although without revealing the exact number of Nissan taxis on the globe, the Japanese brand used to highlight some of the savings that this fleet has achieved in terms of pollutant emissions and the costs of operation and maintenance for the companies that operate them. Calculations done, this fleet of taxis ensured a saving of 90,385 tonnes of CO2 emissions, a 60% reduction in operating costs (thanks to an average cost per kilometer of £ 0.03), a 40% reduction in maintenance costs and a saving of 25 million pounds in fuel compared to taxis powered by thermal engines.
