The electrification of New York City streets is continuing. In addition to passing legislation that will make 20 percent of new parking spaces electric-car ready, the city government would like to make one third of New York taxicabs electric by 2020. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg set that goal in his January 2013 State of the City Address, and created the Long-Term Electric Taxi Task Force to figure out what it would take to implement that goal.
