Paris gets new electric motor-taxi service

Citybird has as just launched the first motorized taxi service using 100 pct electric vehicles, dubbed Electri-city. The electric maxi-scooters are manufactured by Vectrix. Citybird, created in 2003 by three friends, already has a fleet of low CO2 emission scooters operating in Paris – which suffers from a dearth of taxis – and hopes to capture 20 percent of urban traffic by the end of 2008, which would contribute to a significant improvement in air quality.

  3. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you need to publish more on this subject matter, it may not be a taboo matter but generally folks don’t discuss these subjects. To the next! Many thanks!!
