London Gets Its First All-Electric Cab

By Sam Gibbs on at

ClimateCars has just added the electric Renault Fluence Z.E. to its line-up of eco-friendly London taxis just in time for the Olympics. Londoners will be able to zip along knowing that they’re not pumping out noxious gases while sitting in traffic, or at least their cab isn't.

The Fluence Z.E. will do 115 miles on a single charge, powered by a 94bhp electric motor, and it won’t cost you a penny more than the non-green taxis in London – you’ll still need to take out a mortgage to get anywhere far then. [Ubergizmo]
