If you are looking for a greener and cheaper alternative to traditional black cabs, you might be interested in the Dynamo Taxi, the UK's first fully electric taxi.

The Dynamo Taxi is based on the Nissan e-NV200 Evalia MPV, which has been modified by Dynamo Motor Company to meet the strict London taxi regulations. The Dynamo Taxi can accommodate up to five passengers and one wheelchair user, and has features such as a glass roof, heated seats, contactless payment and air conditioning.

One of the main advantages of the Dynamo Taxi is its low running cost and zero tailpipe emissions. The Dynamo Taxi has a 40kWh battery that can provide up to 187 miles of range on a single charge. But how long does it take to charge a Dynamo Taxi? And where can you charge it?

According to the company that made the vehicle that has now sadly ceased production, Dynamo Motor Company, charging a Dynamo Taxi from empty to 80% takes between 40 minutes and an hour on a 46kW rapid charger. These chargers are widely available at public charging stations across the UK, and can be accessed using various apps or cards. You can also charge your Dynamo Taxi at home using a 7kW wallbox, which will take about six hours to fully charge the battery.

The cost of charging a Dynamo Taxi depends on where and when you charge it. Charging at home will typically cost around 14p per kWh, which means a full charge will cost about £5.60. Charging at a public rapid charger will vary depending on the provider, but it could be around 30p per kWh, which means an 80% charge will cost about £9.60. However, some providers offer discounts or free charging for taxi drivers, so it is worth checking before you plug in.

The Dynamo Taxi is an innovative and eco-friendly option for taxi drivers and passengers alike. It offers a comfortable and spacious ride, with low maintenance and fuel costs.

When available the Dynamo Taxi cost £47,995 including the £7,500 government plug-in car grant.
