The Nissan LEAF taxis in Mexico – Nissan Mexicana [video]

About 70 taxi drivers in México have been driving fully electric Nissan LEAFs for more than a year now as part of a pilot program launched in 2011. The objective is to showcase the car’s technology while building experience and evidence of the Nissan LEAF potential under various driving conditions in México.

There are 20 Nissan LEAF taxis in central Mexico City and in another 50 in the Mexican state of Aguascalientes.  There also is a growing charging infrastructure to support operations of EV mobility in both locations – including the first public electric vehicle quick-charging station in Latin America that was celebrated late last year.
