A total of 360 electric Nissan Leafs are to join the fleet of private hire company GlasGO Cabs.
The new cars, in e+ N-Connecta spec, with 62kWh batteries capable of a 239-mile range on the WLTP cycle, will be joining the fleet over the next three years, with the first 11 vehicles due to arrive later this autumn.
The Leafs, supplied through Park's Motor Group, are replacing petrol and diesel cars on the fleet.
GlasGO Cabs director Steven Malcolm said: "We have been thinking for some time about electrifying part or all of our fleet and are delighted to have achieved this in association with Nissan and Park's Motor Group.
''We are serious about doing our bit to reduce air pollution and protect the environment. The replacement of hundreds of our petrol and diesel models with all-electric Nissan Leafs will have a meaningful impact on Glasgow's air quality - and we're delighted about that.
''We're sure our many customers will appreciate the efforts we are making in this area, too. We all have a duty to look after the environment for future generations and we take our responsibilities in this area very seriously."
