NYC Electric Taxi Can't Hack It
Hopes of battery-powered taxis in New York were zapped after an electric cab couldn't hack the average taxi shift during a pilot program earlier this year.
The Taxi and Limousine Commission announced Thursday that the lithium battery-powered PT Cruiser cab also couldn't withstand cold temperatures. The commission was testing whether the environmentally-friendly car could tough it out during the average, strenuous 10-hour New York cab shift.
The cab tested is different than the hybrid electric/gas vehicles that are already on city streets.
