Nissan Earth Day Leaf Taxi Launch
Nissan and New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg will officially launch New York’s electric vehicle taxi pilot on Earth Day (Monday) with the Nissan LEAF. The 5-passenger all-electric, zero-emission vehicle that will be put into taxi service this spring. This pilot will comprise six LEAFs.
As part of this pilot, Nissan and partners in New York City will install some of the city's first "quick chargers," which will enable taxi drivers to re-charge their electric taxis quickly mid-shift.
