Lithium Powered Taxi Hits NYC Streets
With over 12,000 medallion taxi cabs in New York, Hybrid Technologies chose New York as its inaugural location. The long range, highway speed lithium full-sized passenger vehicle has won over the toughest of critics, including the general public. City Hall has requested more taxis, and a significant interest from medallion owners looking to benefit from reduced medallion fees, federal / state emissions initiatives and grants.
The all lithium PT Cruiser was put into service following unanimous approval from the City of New York Taxi and Limousine Commission under Article 14. The taxi has received acclaim from the public and President George W. Bush during the initial days of its operation.
The company is fully prepared and capable of retrofitting most of the fleet of taxis in New York. The process will begin by working with local and state government to bring additional incentives to fleet owners and owner operators within the city of New York.
