The potential of electric vehicles to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions depends on their real world usage. While the real-world driving behavior of personal vehicle travel is well understood, the electrification potential of taxicab fleets in special is not. However, taxicabs in particular might be well suited for electric driving due to their limited driving radius but high daily driving distances. Here, we analyze the electrification potential of a taxicab fleet of 161 vehicles in Karlsruhe, Germany and find a charging power of 50 kW at taxi stands to be sufficient and EV to be potentially cost competitive.
