New York City isn't getting any smaller. That's a fact that simply won't change. Nissan isn't giving up the green fight. There's another fixed truth. Combine these two realities and what do you get? One very large city filled with environmentally-friendly taxicabs.
Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of NYC, is hoping to take advantage of the high demand for transportation and create a more eco-safe city by converting regular taxis into hybrid ones. At this point in time only around 3-percent of the Big Apple's fleet is green certified. However, this is only the beginning. Recently, the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission made a significant step in the right direction by adding a small group of Nissan LEAF cabs into the mix. This initial collection serves as a sample group within the Electric Taxi Pilot Program and allows taxi owners to test out the vehicle at no cost for up to a year. And once commuters and cab drivers experience the LEAF, Anderson Nissan of Asheville has a good feeling that "small group" will expand.
Here are some of the reasons we feel the Nissan LEAF is the perfect candidate for the job:- Petrol-free
- Zero emissions
- 5-star overall safety rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
- 100-mile per charge driving range
- 5-passenger capability
