Japanese Entrepreneur Offers New 'Eco-Taxi' Service.
"Since our daily life is so dependent on cars, I decided to use them as a tool to get people interested in environmental problems...," said Nakamura.
According to Taipei Times, Nakamura said the company, New Trans System, currently maintains a fleet of 10 Prius HEVs, with two additional vehicles to be introduced later this month.
The newspaper said Nakamura noted that he hopes to operate 300 hybrid taxis next year via an arrangement with a used car dealer, as well as offer similar services in France, Germany and Italy in the next few years.
