A number of law enforcement agencies around the world are testing out the Ford Mustang Mach-E as a potential police vehicle, while at least one department has already gone ahead and purchased two of them. However, Ford doesn’t make a police-specific Mach-E just yet, only a pilot vehicle with the Mach-E GT’s powertrain that recently passed Michigan State Police testing, even if it isn’t entirely optimized for that purpose. In addition to that, a Mach-E taxi cab was recently spotted in New York City, and now, the EV crossover is officially in use as an NYC taxi.
This news comes to us from Gravity Technologies, which is launching its first Ford Mustang Mach-E taxi adorned in the familiar yellow New York City taxi livery, just in time for the holidays, now that the crossover has received its final approval from Big Apple officials. This is the very first time the Mach-E has been employed as a taxi in an official capacity, and it will be joined by a Tesla Model Y in the coming days as well. The taxis will be charged overnight at Gravity’s own Midtown Manhattan charging space on West 42nd Street.
