3 years ago by Mike Anthony 1

Nissan LEAF ready for rome!.. Or vise versa.

Nissan LEAF is ready for Rome!.. Or vice versa.

“Nissan LEAF has been in use as taxis across Europe in Lisbon, Amsterdam, Newcastle and Barcelona.”

States the video description.

We can now add Rome to the growing list of places where you can hail an electric LEAF taxi.

For now, Rome gets a few Nissan LEAF taxis. Of course, we can safely assume there will be a lot more added in the future.

In the brief video above, we learn that it appears that Rome has the charging situation covered.

How well do you think the LEAF will perform in an atmosphere like Rome?  More specifically, is the LEAF up the the taxi task in Rome? Let us know what you think in comments below.

    Nice.

    Sales in Italy in October:
    151 BEVs
    At least 39 PHEVs/EREVs
    (Volvo V60, 24 – BMW i3 REx, 15)

    BEV (Elettriche) is a category on its own in the reports, while PHEVs/EREVs are included in the hybrids (Ibride).

    So the total is known for the BEVs, while for the others we have only the top 10 (monthly and YTD) to look at (available for BEVs as well).

    Total PEVs, at least 190 (likely about 200), or about 0.15% market share. Almost doubling from Oct’13. It’s a start…

    Changes in the subsidies scheme a few weeks ago open some possibilities of serious growth. Let’s hope…
