Mexico City has received three Nissan LEAFs and charging stations to be used for their “Zero-Emissions Taxis” pilot program.  Mexican Nissan President, Jesus Munoz, said “We have delivered the first three vehicles of this program, which consists of 100 vehicles as part of a pilot program. It will have a later phase where we'll deliver 500 units so that they can be used as taxis in the middle of Mexico City."


The program is designed for the taxis to operate about four hours between charges and travel up to 135 miles per day, according to Gabriela Fernandez, CEO of General Electric en Mexico, who is providing the quick-charge systems.
