London Mayor announced black cab EV investment
Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, has announced plans to invest an extra £24m to help more black cab drivers switch to electric vehicles. The plans will more than double the TfL’s existing £18m fund. Additionally, grants will be restructured to provide more payments at higher levels.
Black Cab, Toyota Prius.
Reading tip I: It takes time to become iconic and Aatif Sulleyman describes the history of London’s Black Cab from its early beginnings as a horse drawn coach over early attempts of electrification to its future as electric hi-tech carriers. Next time you hear cab, think cabriolet.
Reading tip II: Another, shorter look back is taken by Sami Haj-Assaad, who recounts the 15 years since the introduction of the Toyota Prius. Although Honda brought the Insight first, it is the Prius that seized and still wears the hybrid crown.
