US taxi drivers are increasingly choosing Tesla Model 3

Tesla Model 3 is gaining popularity not only in the world in general, but also, for example, as a taxi car. At the end of 2019, the Model 3 became the first electric vehicle approved by the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) for use as part of the New York taxi service. These are the very legendary Yellow Cabs.

A year passed before the first Model 3 appeared in the New York taxi fleet, and now it is reported that these cars are becoming more and more popular. There is no exact data yet, but the source talks about the operator United Taxi Management NY, which even installed its own charging for electric vehicles at its base and added four more Model 3s to its taxi fleet.

The source also mentions 10 cars from the Columbus Yellow Cab and 40 cars from the Green Cab Madison, who completely switched to Model 3.

The Model 3 in the US starts at $ 30,000, and at the high mileage typical of taxi cars, it turns out to be much more profitable than conventional ICE cars.
