A taxi driver in Dundee has become the first to own a fully electric zero-emission wheelchair-accessible car.
The vehicle, owned by Brian Marnie, which is powered by a 40kWh lithium-ion battery, has a range of up to 124-187 miles on a single charge.
Brian said: “I’m excited to own the first fully electric wheelchair-access Hackney in the area – it will provide me with a great vehicle that allows me to transport wheelchair users to their destination, with the added fact that I’m doing my bit for climate change.”
