A Cornwall taxi company has clocked up 150,000 miles and more than 37,000 individual fares in its fleet of five Nissan LEAF taxis.

St Austell-based C&C Taxis has saved money and grown its business thanks to the EVs. In fact, its fuel bill has been slashed by an amazing £40,000 over the last year.

 

C&C Taxis owner, Michelle Williams told Next Green Car: “When we took our first LEAF a year ago we could never have imagined how successful it would have been. The fact we now have five and have hit the 150,000-mile mark says it all. Investing in the LEAF has probably been the best decision we’ve ever made as a company.”

“Our customers love them and most of the big hotels in the area now use us as their taxi company of choice, which has been a real coup. In fact, many of the hotels now ask guests who book a taxi whether they’d like an electric one and then specifically ask for a LEAF.”

The company has its own rapid charger which will charge the LEAF from zero to 80% in 30 minutes. As most journeys involving the LEAF cover a distance of up to 40 miles, charging is not a problem.
