Question

Even with additional fuel savings (a Prius is capable of the same, if not greater savings) a new ZEC Taxi is going to be double, if not treble, what a typical PHV costs to operate in the same Market. The £7,500 grants that are rumoured to be available to Cabbies are clearly not going to be enough. Will the Mayor be looking to find more funding, or is the intention to price taxi drivers out of the market, as was warned by Jacobs in October 2014?
