Addison Lee has said that it will go fully electric by 2023.
The taxi group said it will invest £160m into it’s 4,000 taxis – making them all electric.
“As the transport provider of choice for many businesses and passengers, we know that we play a critical role in London’s transport network,” said Liam Griffin, the group’s chief executive.
“Over the years, we have invested in our vehicles and technology to ensure we do all we can to make London a greener place.
“We are now going even further, by partnering with Volkswagen to invest in a rapid transition to electric.
“In doing so, we can help more businesses reduce their carbon footprint and give passengers greater access to green, safe and premium transport options as life gets back to normal,” he added.
Uber is also planning to be fully electric and has made plans to achieve this by 2025.
“As we continue working tirelessly to decarbonise our transport network, I am thrilled to see Addison Lee lead the way through pledging to electrify their fleet by 2023,” said Transport Secretary Grant Shapps.
“This Government has committed to reach net zero by 2050. With more than 500,000 electric vehicles now on our roads and nearly 25,000 public charge points, we’re at the beginning of an electric vehicle revolution which will help create communities free from pollution as well as supporting thousands of jobs in the supply chain over the coming decades.”
