Electric Taxis Debut in Tokyo

Hinomaru Limousine Co. is introducing two Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric taxis into service around Tokyo Station—Tokyo’s first in-service electric taxis.

The new cabs will be available in the Marunouchi, Otemachi and Yurakucho business districts during the daytime on weekdays. The EVs—dubbed ZeROTAXIs—will only take short-haul passengers.

Electrically powered cars are already used for taxi service in some regional cities, such as Okayama and Matsuyama, according to the Nikkei.
