Tesla S - Yandex Taxi - 2

In a move to emulate Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport in providing an all-electric solution for its taxi service using Tesla Model S cars, Yandex.Taxi, which operates in Moscow, Russia, has recently acquired a couple of units for its customers to experience the special service.

“At least we give people the opportunity to try out electric vehicles and will be able to understand features of operation in taxi cars on the battery in our climate and with our traffic jams,” said Yandex.Taxi Head Tigran Khudaverdyan.

Similarly to the MyTeksi here in Malaysia, Yandex Taxi is essentially a mobile app that allows customers to book a cab online and monitor its location.

Unfortunately, unlike the Schiphol Airport which has a fleet of 167 units of the all-electric car, Yandex.Taxi only has two.
