Schiphol Group has announced that it will award Tesla Model S EVs to winners of a competition for Schiphol Airport taxis it presented awhile ago.

The winners are Zorgvervoer Central Netherlands BV, Willemsen -de Koning BV and Bergisch, Book & Hoff Frissen BV.

Those winners will receive Tesla Model S EVs starting on June 1.  The taxis will be in service for a minimum of 4 years, with the possibility of extending contracts out to 8 years.

All told, more than 100 Tesla Model S taxis will go into service courtesy of Schiphol Group.  As Schiphol says, the 100 Model S taxis will all be on the road by late 2014.

Schiphol will use the taxis to display its support for sustainable mobility at the airport.
