A glimpse of the movement of tomorrow? – It is already tangible in Hamburg. The Free and Hanseatic City is systematically bringing electric mobility to the streets and is leading the way as a nationwide pioneer. With the “Future Taxi” project, an incentive scheme devised as part of Hamburg’s climate plan, taxi operators are given start-up support for making the switch to electric drive.
