Phoenix Taxis Logo

Phoenix Taxis are a North East based taxi firm, operating from a central office in Blyth, Northumberland. The firm offers taxi, minibus and coach services across Northumberland, Tyneside and Newcastle. Their fleet of vehicles consists of around 30 pure electric taxis and more than 50 hybrid taxis. 

The Brief

Alex Hurst, the CEO of Phoenix Taxis contacted us as they required a comprehensive business charging infrastructure to keep their fleet on the roads. 

“Businesses are increasingly focused on sustainability and our electric vehicles allow us to offer businesses an easy way to significantly reduce their carbon footprint.” – Alex Hurst, CEO of Phoenix Taxis

The Solution 

Working with Phoenix Taxis we discussed their requirements and conducted an extensive site audit.

We shared the findings from the audit with the team and quoted for a full installation of one fast Eve Dual 2.0 chargepoint with Hubsta subscription. We also supplied a full service maintenance agreement, offering the taxi firm, 24 hours’ response time from initial contact, unlimited call outs, one annual safety test per charger and DBT report and unlimited remote and telephone support. 

The install took only a matter of days. Before leaving the site our BS7671 (2011) qualified electricians delivered a full training package to the staff on equipment and Hubsta software. Their team was also given training on their software portal to monitor and manage infrastructure remotely.

“As part of our business account service we produce monthly carbon reports to show our clients the carbon emissions saved, which we can access via the smart charging infrastructure and network management portal.” – Alex Hurst, CEO of Phoenix Taxis
