eConnect cars was invited to join a consortium of 12 interested parties in submitting a proposal to the European Commission to obtain funding for a project aimed at identifying ways and means of promoting the use of electric vehicles as taxis in European cities.
The proposal was submitted in May 2013 for the four cities included in the project; Barcelona, London, Bologna and Stuttgart. eConnect cars participated in conjunction with Transport for London to represent London. Unfortunately the proposal was not successful. However a number of ideas and concepts from this process have been included in the submission to OLEV under their ‘call for evidence’ https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/measures-to-support-uptake-of-ultra-low-emission-vehicles-from-2015-to-2020
