Full electric taxi operations made profitable
The potential contribution of electric taxis to cleaner and more liveable inner cities is significant. Yet, only a fraction of all taxi trips are currently carried out with electric vehicles. This despite the fact that many passengers are likely to prefer a sustainable taxi ride over a conventional one if they had the option.
Telematics a must, not an after-thought
Making electric taxi’s more mainstream in inner cities requires integration with the dispatching environment. The use of electric vehicles adds new dimensions to dispatching of taxis: battery state-of-charge and driving range. Without real-time insight to both, it is virtually impossible to manage daily taxi operations and to guarantee that a passenger actually can be brought from location A to location B without an unwanted stop for recharging.
Good news for Taxi-Electric is Amsterdam that Sycada.Green’s connected EV platform does exactly this!
