The Cambridge City Council has selected eVolt to supply EV charging points across the city for the Ultra Low Emission Vehicle Taxi project, aiming to increase the number of electrified taxis on the roads.
The project, which is mainly funded by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV), will have eVolt installing 21 Rapid and Fast Chargers across the city over a three year period. The first phase has already begun, and two chargers are currently operational. Another six chargers will be installed at three other sites by September.
“Installing these new rapid chargers for electric taxis marks a genuinely positive shift away from polluting diesel taxis,” said Rosy Moore, executive councillor for environment and city centre, before adding: “Work like this is one way the council is aiming to make it much easier for people to use electric vehicles, in order to help improve air quality for all of Cambridge’s residents plus all of those people who work in and visit the city.”
