Nissan Leaf new electric taxi will be around London on the 23rd and 24th of June. You will be able to get in there for free if you tweet with the hash tag #6xcheaper and the destination on where you would like to go.
The cost of the Cab to Heathrow will just cost the driver 28 pence in electricity. While the patrol cab will have to pay £1.69, the hashtag when you tweet is for the point of recharging the vehicle. It will cost you 1.70 pence to go for one mile which is considerably lower than patrol which would cost you around 10 pence per mile.
The driver and Nissan will ask the customers for feedback to improve the service and to check if this is really what the citizens want.
Managing Director of Nissan GB said “By contributing free taxi rides, we aspire to show hundreds of citizens just how realistic and affordable the Nissan LEAF is to run. As each journey costs us so little, we’re not charging passengers – there’s no point quibbling over a few pence”.
