Hamburg Leads the Way: City to Ban Petrol-Powered Taxis by 2025

Hamburg is the first city in Germany to ban petrol-powered taxis by 2025. Currently, 12 percent of Hamburg’s taxis are powered by electricity or hydrogen, and this switch will help to save 2,000 tonnes of CO2 annually. The project, called „Future Taxi“, was launched in 2021 and has seen 350 electric and 25 hydrogen-powered cars on the streets. This move is likely to have a positive effect on other cities in Germany and Europe when it comes to transitioning away from petrol-powered vehicles. Feedback from businesses and passengers has been positive, with 80 percent of emissions-free taxis being provided by FREE NOW.

The Benefits of Emissions-Free Technology

Emissions-free technology is becoming increasingly popular as a way to reduce air pollution and its associated health risks. This type of technology does not rely on burning fossil fuels, which are the primary source of air pollution. Instead, emissions-free technology uses renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, or hydroelectric power to generate electricity. This means that no harmful emissions are released into the atmosphere when this type of technology is used. Additionally, emissions-free technology can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change. As such, it is an important part of any sustainable energy strategy.
