Londoners will soon be able to hail an electric taxi in the form of the Mercedes Vito E-Taxi. This converted Mercedes Vito can go up to 120 kilometers on a six-hour charge. Lucky Londoners.
The Mercedes Vito E-Taxi is actually just a regular Mercedes Vito that has been modified to run on electricity. The technical mumbo jumbo can be found through the source links, but what I can tell you is that this idea rocks. I once knew a cabbie whose biggest complaint was the price of gas. Cab drivers would be on top of the world if all taxis were electric-powered. You heard it here first.
