Over half of London’s black cabs are now electric-ish.

Transport for London says that over half the capital’s nearly 14,700 Hackney carriages are now “zero emissions capable.” The most common of these is the London Electric Vehicle Company’s TX taxi, a plug-in hybrid with a pure-electric range of around 80 miles.

Fun fact: London’s first electric taxi was from the 1800s, but the Bersey Electric Cab was sadly withdrawn from service in 1899 due to reliability issues.
