The electric taxi fleet is located on the federal territory of Sirius.
«The climate of Sochi is suitable for electric vehicles. There are also a lot of visitors - taxis are always in demand. Therefore, we decided that electric cars would be more useful here than anywhere else in order to preserve this ecology, since the city is a resort,» said Isa Aidamirov, director of the electric taxi fleet.
An electric taxi is available in the center of Sochi, Adler, Krasnaya Polyana and Sirius. You can order a car in the familiar Yandex.Taxi application. While calling a taxi, the client chooses the class of the car, and soon he will be able to choose the type - a familiar car with a gasoline engine or an electric car. The charge of an electric car is enough for 300 kilometers.
“As part of the program of the year of ecology in Sochi, a test launch of the first electric bus on the city’s public transport route is scheduled for April,” the city administration said.
It is also planned to develop the infrastructure of charging stations. Now there are 4 fast electric charging stations in Sochi - one in the Rosa Khutor mountain resort, the second in Central Sochi - next to the Pullman Hotel, and two more - in the Imereti Valley. They allow you to charge the car in 30-40 minutes. The continuation of the project for the development of electric transport will be the connection of Sochi and Moscow with a network of fast electric filling stations along the Don highway, there will be 20 of them, the estimated investment budget will be 60 million rubles.
