The Colombian capital of Bogota has rolled out a fleet of electric taxis, made by Chinese automobile company BYD. It is the largest such fleet in South America, and is designed to improve the city’s air quality and reduce pollution. But there are some challenges in maintaining these eco-friendly vehicles.

    How nice if taxi companies and maybe even public transportation would switch to electric vehicles at least in our major cities in the States. Would do wonders on lowering gas emissions and pollution.
