http://www.islandecho.co.uk/news/isle-w ... i-launched

Starts:
The Isle of Wight’s first fully electric taxi is now out and about on the roads thanks to Newport-based e-Taxi.

A 2016 Nissan Leaf has been chosen as the eco-friendly vehicle of choice for Matt Malkin, who recently established e-Taxi thanks to his love of cars.

Hehe... Ya READING this stuff???:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_Wight
The island has resorts that have been holiday destinations since Victorian times, and is known for its mild climate, coastal scenery, and verdant landscape of fields, downland and chines.
It has a maritime and industrial tradition including boat-building, sail-making, ebike making, the manufacture of flying boats, the hovercraft, and Britain's space rockets.
The island is well known for its cycling, and it was included within Lonely Planet's Best in Travel Guide (2010) top ten ebiking locations. The island also hosts events such as the Isle of Wight Randonnée and the Isle of Wight Ebiking Festival each year.
:shock:

Since the weather is cool there, the early-gen Leaf should be fine.

A taxi driver in Scandinavia is using a Tesla-S as a taxi, and he has over 300,000 miles on it...still has over 90% battery capacity.

We have a few Tesla S "Uber" taxis here that you can request ...but you have to be a "high score" preferred customer to use one ??
Several "Limo" service companies also use Tesla's
And you can also "rent" a Tesla if you can afford the astronomical charges !

Hehe... Perhaps like electric bikes. ("Better value" as "used"/needing a "fresh" battery...)

Used electric cars: the best bang for your buck?:

Takeaway: Consider buying a used electric car, said AAA, which releases its annual True Cost of Vehicle Ownership report Wednesday.
