The Future of Taxi is Electric
Together with our partner Renault M.A.I., iCabbi are introducing an EV Taxi bundle for customer fleets from 2020. The EVs will include Renault Zoes, Nissan Leafs and other exciting Renault models which are soon to be launched. Our goal is to help our customers succeed, and this EV taxi partnership is designed to keep the taxi industry both relevant and prosperous in the new transport age.
How does the EV Taxi offering deliver value across the board?

The triple bottom line means that a successful green initiative must deliver wins for the environment (the planet), society (people) and business (profit). iCabbi’s EV Taxi initiative does just that: Lower emissions help the environment; improvement in air quality helps society; and lower running costs drive sustainable taxi businesses forward. 

In practical terms, drivers will increase their earnings by replacing fuel costs with far cheaper EV charging costs and avoid congestion charges which are set to become commonplace in towns and cities. Meanwhile, your taxi fleet will be able to reduce their carbon footprint and meet the growing demand from private passengers, business customers and government agencies for more sustainable modes of transport.  

 

The City Electric Pilot: EV Taxis roll-out in Sheffield

City Taxis is just one of our customers who is seeking to shape a more sustainable transport landscape for its city by electrifying its fleet. On Friday 13 December, City Taxis officially launched City Electric in partnership with iCabbi and announced ambitious plans to electrify its 2000 taxis by 2025. The pilot ran for over 15 weeks, with the results proving that the E taxi offering delivers significant fuel cost savings to drivers, with an average X% increase in take-home pay.
