Fleet of 167 Tesla electric taxis deployed at Schiphol
The electric luxury cars will be operated by private hire companies BBF Schipholtaxi and BIOS-groep, with an expected life cycle of at least four years, possibly extended to eight, offering green onward travel for visitors to the airport.
Jos Nijhuis, Schiphol Group's President and CEO, said: ‘This represents a crucial step in our efforts to reduce CO2 emissions and become one of the world's three most sustainable airports.’
Schiphol Aiport has previously operated a battery switch station, launched with Better Place in 2012, serving a fleet of ten Renault Fluence Z.E. taxis which were based on site.
