The fleet, including 15 electric Teslas, will roll out with the same prices as a regular cab in Victoria and can be booked online or through the company’s app.

“Riding in sustainable style shouldn’t break the bank,” wrote the company in a Facebook comment on Monday.

A photo surfaced on reddit this week, showing one of the taxis parked in a Victoria parkade as well.

Currently the company operates in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Peachland and Lake Country. Founder, Dale Conway, worked in hospitality throughout his career and recognized the need for a “customer-centric and environmentally responsible option” for cabs. The company was started in 2017 and has rolled out three new models of Teslas for passengers to ride in.
