Electric Blue in partnership with Coventry City Council has set up a trial for the city’s taxi drivers to rent a zero emission electric taxi (e-Taxi) whilst they consider the benefits of converting to an electric vehicle permanently. Alex Calnan Electric Blue’s CEO says that offering “try before you buy” is an exciting concept. “For many people driving an EV is too much of an unknown and in the taxi arena drivers often haven’t been in an EV and aren’t aware of the benefits and how feasible it is”
We all love a good myth. I’m sure many of us have been told ‘cracking your knuckles will give you arthritis’ or ‘going out with wet hair will cause you to catch a cold’. So it’s unsurprising that when I’ve come up against opposition, this is usually based on various myths. Since beginning this journey towards a zero emission taxi fleet I have had to become fairly adept at fielding questions about the suitability of electric vehicles. There are a number of questions that come up repeatedly so I thought I would share with you, my now well rehearsed answers. Over the coming weeks I will deal with the most common myths that I have come across about electric cars.
