Mission Electric is committed to increasing awareness about electric vehicles in New York City for for-hire vehicle (FHV) drivers and our community as a whole.
We believe in clean, efficient transportation here in New York, and believe that as a licensed ride-hailing driver, you can make a difference in our local air quality, in how much you spend on fuel and maintenance for your vehicle, and be part of a growing #missionelectric movement.
NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) has approved a one-year extension of the for-hire vehicle (FHV) license pause. Owners of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) may apply for a new FHV vehicle license from TLC through an exemption beginning on August 2019.
Only battery electric vehicles (BEVs) are allowed an exemption, such as the Chevrolet Bolt, Nissan Leaf and Tesla Model 3. These vehicles run exclusively on batteries and do not have traditional fuel engines. There are currently many different BEV models. Vehicles with a gas tank (such as hybrids, plug-in hybrids and PHEVs) are NOT eligible for the electric vehicle exception, such as the Toyota Prius Prime or Ford Fusion Energi. Find out more about the exemption from NYC TLC.

Four U.S. cities have joined together to demonstrate the potential for electric shared mobility services. With funding from the U.S. Department of Energy and a team of valuable partners, “Making the Business Case for Smart, Shared, and Sustainable Mobility Services” aims to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles in shared mobility applications and to establish best practices that can be used by others around the United States. The project, led by the City of Seattle and Atlas Public Policy, brings together the U.S. Department of Energy’s Energy Efficient Mobility Systems program and major industry stakeholders with the cities of Seattle, New York, Portland, and Denver to test different electric, shared mobility interventions.
