London to get fleet of electric taxis

Climatecars, a taxi firm which has used hybrid cars (electric and petrol) since its launch in 2007, is to be one of the first companies to bring fully electric Renault Fluence Z.E. cars to the UK

The company, set up by 28-year-old multi-award winning entrepreneur Nicko Williamson, has 700 account holders and several thousand individual customers.

The distance the cars can go on one charge is 115 miles. They can be charged at existing stations around the city, and Climatecars also plans to get its own charging point.

The taxi service will cost the same for the customer regardless of whether they use a hybrid or electric car.
