Dundee taxi company to triple its electric fleet
The company already has 30 taxis on its fleet, supported by five rapid chargers and ten 7kW chargers from Evolt, which were installed by APT Controls. These are in constant use, with the rapid chargers completing 17-21 charges per day.
David Young, 203020’s CEO, said: “This time next year every vehicle we own will be 100% electric, and with that expansions come an increased use of the charge points. Two of our Rapid chargers are already the busiest in the UK, and our original 30 EVs will very soon reach 1,000,000 miles, saving hundreds of tons of carbon emissions.”
Justin Meyer, general manager for Evolt, added that this will become a more common setup: “The take-up of EVs, and therefore the increased need for charge points, is accelerating and we forecast significant growth in the supply of our EV charging solutions to taxi companies as well as to local councils for their fleets and initiatives.”
