I think (thanks to SB) we might have got off on the wrong foot with this thread. Fair enough if it was one of our own renting to another of our own for a couple of ton a week, it'd be worthy of the praise implied in the thread title. However, should we not be asking how someone who doesn't appear to be Irish by accident of birth can afford to operate such a vehicle as a taxi?
Maybe inheritance or claiming the dole under about 10 different names

The cars in the list above is most likely Tesla model S or even the X model.A bigger Jaguar/jeep size car.The model 3 in the OP is the "cheaper" smaller version.Only released in Ireland 2 weeks ago.They're about 48k to civilians..but with the leccy taxi grant we could be in one for 41k.

It's mental money buy some lads could be saving up to 5k a year on juice so it could pay for itself if you kept it long enough.Nice but maybe too nice for our job.

I'll be lucky to spend 14k on a four yr old hape in Feb 21.

I just had a look at the latest SPSV newsletter and the leccy grant has been increased to 10k for taxis.So that's another 3k off the new price of an electric taxi.Not too shabby.

It's a shame they didn't offer a few quid off some hybrids that aren't plug in as the Toyota corrolla hybrid would be a good transition vehicle.

The Renault Zoe but it's tiny.The leaf with the smaller battery was about 21k after all grants.It may be even cheaper now.

As far as I can tell the SEAI grant is still there but only for personal users.Business users are excluded.Needs some research.
