Electric Taxis

We have the largest EV and low carbon emission fleet in the UK

The Nissan LEAF – The 100% Electric Taxi

Phoenix Taxis were the first taxi company in the UK to offer an electric taxi service. We based our electric vehicle plans around the pioneering technology of the Nissan LEAF.

Currently, we have the largest EV and low carbon emission fleet in the UK and offer easily the most progressive and comprehensive green taxi service in the North of England.

Our commitment to our environment is an integral part of our business. In 2013, we introduced nine Nissan LEAFs into the taxi fleet with total investment of £250k. Since then, we’ve more than trebled our fleet of electric cars, and have even cycled out older models to utilise improvements in battery range and passenger safety and comfort features.

We’ll soon have a fleet of 50 electric vehicles with a wide network of rapid charging points throughout the North East.

We’re also delighted to be the only firm in the North of England operating the Tesla Model S 100% electric super-car as a taxi, which has a range of over 250 miles.

If you want to know more about our electric taxis or are interested in renting or buying a Nissan LEAF to use as a taxi, rideshare or private hire vehicle, please contact alex.hurst(at)phoenixtaxisbl.co.uk.

3,000,000 Miles (and counting!)

Phoenix Taxis are proud to have been a part of the first 3,000,000 miles travelled as a taxi for Nissan’s 100% electric vehicle: the LEAF.  They’ve produced a video featuring our own MD Alex Hurst as he explains the impact the LEAF has had for us.  You can also read the full article.
