"We start with a maximum of 50 electric vehicles and we hope to gradually make all vehicles green.”
The number has been limited to 50 as the maximum number of taxis that are allowed within the Brussels-Capital Region is set at 1,300. At present there are 1,223 licenced taxis in Brussels.
The green taxis will be recognisable as they will carry a special logo. A decision on who will operate the green taxis will be taken later this year.
