The London Taxi Company is planning to launch a new model of electric taxi in Barcelona. The first ecofriendly cars, which seat 6 passengers, are supposed to appear on the roads in 2018. Some professionals are sceptical about this endeavour. Their main concern is the lack of places to charge the cars – currently there are only 360 public chargers. This is why hybrids, working on petrol and electricity, are more popular. LTC has already tried to foster in Barcelonians a love for electric cars, but they have turned out to be uncompetitive due to high prices. Now the company is saying that it has taken into account previous mistakes.
