EV World — The World of Electric, Plug-in Hybrid, Fuel Cell and Alternative Fuel Vehicles — has another “green taxi” story.
Said Yellow Checker Cab President Mike Barnard, ?€œother cities, including New York and San Francisco have recently introduced hybrids into their fleets. This will be a good test vehicle in our market area to see how well the Prius performs and holds up under heavy taxi use.?€?
I wonder if the answer is already known? One might assume that a version of Hybrid Synergy Drive has been tested by Japanese taxi companies.
