The new cabs will be available in the Marunouchi, Otemachi and Yurakucho business districts during the daytime on weekdays. The EVs—dubbed ZeROTAXIs—will only take short-haul passengers.

Electrically powered cars are already used for taxi service in some regional cities, such as Okayama and Matsuyama, according to the Nikkei.



More good news for electrified vehicles. Let's hope that 1000 other cities will follow soon.
