There are many makes and models of electric and zero emissions capable vehicles available to purchase, hire or lease by London's private hire vehicle operators and drivers. Indeed, many of those types of vehicle are already being operated by the private hire industry.

The Office for Low Emission Vehicles offers grants for low or zero emission vehicles which make this type of vehicle more affordable.
