Dublin has introduced the city's first electric taxis as part of a joint pilot programme between the Electricity Supply Board (ESB) and National Radio Cabs (NRC). Described as one of the first functioning electric taxi schemes in Europe, its progress and performance is to be monitored by an EU research programme.

The two taxis, a Nissan Leaf saloon and a Peugeot Expert are both wheelchair-accessible and have a daily capacity of 160km when fully charged. The cars will be charged at night through special power points installed at the drivers
