German Taxis Add Jaguar I-PACE SUVs to Their Fleets

 
 



Imagine lifting your hand to hail a taxi in Charlotte, and instead of a classic, dowdy yellow sedan pulling up to the curb, you're greeted by a Jaguar I-PACE.

In Munich, it's not just a possibility--it's happening.

Typical German taxi services are flooded with Mercedes-Benz sedans, specifically E-Class models. But as the world moves toward a new, more-efficient approach to cars, the city of Munich has been looking into reducing pollution by switching to electric cars for heavy-commuting vehicles like taxi cabs.

Jaguar was only too happy to participate.

Bloomberg News reports that Jaguar delivered ten of its stunning new Jaguar I-PACE electric luxury SUVs to help combat that pollution--but also to expose a greater number of drivers to the relative ease of switching to an electric car in this day and age.

The Jaguar I-PACE has an electric-only driving range of 240 miles on a full charge, and boasts 394 horsepower and 512 pound-feet of torque combined from its pair of electric motors and hefty battery pack.

Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover’s Chief Executive Officer, has said that "the company was open to expanding into other city taxi fleets".

What would you think of taxiing to or from the airport in an all-electric Jaguar?
