This is where electric cars really come into their own.
There’s a strong case to be made that private car ownership is an inefficient use of resources, even if those cars are electric. But it’s hard to imagine a world in the near future where cars cease to exist entirely.
That’s why taxis, in particular, are an area where electrification should be prioritized. Not least because they travel many more miles per vehicle per year than an average privately owned vehicle that sits idle for much of the day. That’s why it’s good to hear via Electrek that Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam completed 70% of the 1 million taxi rides taken from the airport in fully electric Teslas.
