Walking outside of Tokyo station I run into the zero emission taxi. A small electric car produced by Mitsubishi. I was happy to see that apart from Nissan Renault with their Leaf and GM with the Volt also Mitsubishi entered the market of electric cars.
The environmental friendly Zero Taxi with its cute round shape, white body, shades of green embellishing the door panels and a logo declaring Zero-emission Taxi. The Japanese call it: Zero-taku, this taxi can drive about 160 km on a full battery. The first 2 km cost you a little less than 8.00 $ which is about the same as what you pay for an ordinary taxi which runs usually on LPG in Japan.
