Phoenix Taxis, the largest electric and hybrid taxi company in the UK, has made an exciting electric addition to its fleet.

The Northumberland-based firm has purchased a Tesla S, a premium electric car, as a luxury addition to its executive range of cars.

“We genuinely care about the environment and are driven by a passion to reduce our carbon footprint and have done this consistently through the years by investing in new technology and exploring alternative fuel resources to petrol or diesel.
