From September 2017, the city of Munich promotes the use of electric taxis. As reported by the online platform Taxi-heute.de, the city administration supports every passenger-kilometer driven by an electric taxi with 0,20 euros (approx. 0,24 US$).
The subsidies cease when 40 percent of the electric vehicle’s acquisition costs are reached. According to the news article, the electric taxis must have a fiscal parameter which stores the collected driving data. A further condition: the vehicles must be on the road for at least 36 months.
The administration would also like to promote the construction of three quick-loading stations, especially for taxiing. Overall, the city puts two million euros into the project, which are to be converted into 10 million e-taxi kilometers. For this purpose, the responsible Department for Health and the Environment has been offering forms of application and the subsidy guideline on their website www.muenchen.de/emobil for reading and downloading since the beginning of August 2017.
