A brand new Beijing Auto Senova EV200 electric taxi, Spotted in China in the Fengtai District in Beijing. The taxi is based on the sedan version of the Senova EV200 hatchback, which in turn is based on the petrol-powered Senova D20.

The Senova EV200 electric taxi is part of a pilot project consisting of 500 cars that will be put to work in the southern suburbs of Beijing. The project is a continuation of a similar scheme with 200 Beijing Auto E150EV (the predecessor of the EV200) that started last year in the north eastern suburbs.
