Green Cab goes greener with Teslas

Green Cab, a local taxicab company that launched in 2010 with environmentally friendly Toyata Prius hybrids, is switching to even greener electric Tesla Model 3s, available at no extra charge to riders using the Green Cab app.

In a partnership with Madison startup, Zerology, Green Cab Co. will become the first all-electric ride-share company in the nation using the high-technology Teslas, which cost about $39,000 each.

The company is starting with 20 brand new Teslas and will continue adding to its fleet as it replaces its Prius hybrids in a combined effort with Zerology to reduce carbon emissions in Madison.
