Taxi Electric and NissanNissan has announced that Taxi Electric of Amsterdam will be the first private taxi company in the country to use the Nissan e-NV200 electric taxi for its zero-emission transportation fleet.

Taxi Electric and Nissan have been working closely to provide eco-friendly public transportation to Amsterdam for some time now, as the company’s current cab fleet is comprised of 25 Nissan LEAFS—the automaker’s zero-emission passenger car. Since opening for business in 2011, Taxi Electric and Nissan have traveled more than 1.5 million kilometers in Amsterdam without a single CO2 emission.

“Taxi Electric was one of the first electric taxi companies in the world, and I’ve been impressed with their progress since their launch two years ago,” said Nissan Executive Vice President Andy Palmer in the company’s press release. “They were the first to prove that zero-emission taxis – in the form of Nissan LEAFs – are a viable alternative. They have covered an astonishing distance in their fleet in such a short time and have shown just how reliable our electric technology is in a demanding environment. Their pioneering spirit closely matches ours, and we are certain they will continue their success with the ground-breaking Nissan e-NV200.”

In addition to being used in Amsterdam, the city of Barcelona has signed a memorandum of understanding with Nissan in order to ensure the e-NV200’s application in Spain. Production of the all-electric e-NV200 is expected to get underway in May, with sales expected to begin later this summer.
