Will we ever switch all of our taxis to electric power?

    Japan recently started testing a program that will potentially replace all of the taxis in the city with EV’s. The taxis currently have swappable batteries that can be quickly changed when they run out of power. However, they are hoping to have cars with cords and rechargeable batteries by early 2010. If this pilot program works, there is a possibility that electric taxis could become a common thing in other cities. This would be a huge step in the reduction of CO2 emissions, because in Tokyo taxis account for 20% of the cities carbon dioxide emissions.
