Electric taxis to serve in Beijing


On Jan. 9, staff members inspect rechargeable electric taxis at the first charge station for electric taxis in Beijing, China's capital city. The 2,205-square-meter charge station, capable of recharging 50 vehicles at the same time, was opened in Yanqing County in December 2010. At present, the first batch of 50 electric taxis, which have a car battery of 25 kilowatts each, have already gone into service. It was reported that the electric taxi can run more than 150 kilometers when fully charged.
