Going green: the first 100% electric taxi in Surrey Heath!

At YLC, we’ve just taken delivery of a brand new 100% electric SUV to join our private hire fleet. We’re proud to say that this is the first electric taxi in the Surrey Heath area.

Spacious and eco-friendly

Our smart and super-comfortable VW ID.4 can take four passengers in comfort, along with all your luggage in the large boot area. With plenty of legroom and a luxury leather and suede seat trim, our new electric taxi offers you, your family and/or your colleagues an exceptionally comfortable and environmentally friendly journey.


Carbon-free journeys for Christmas festivities

We’re particularly proud that this latest addition to our fleet is a high-quality VW SUV rather than the smaller electric vehicles. This ensures a much smoother, more comfortable ride with better legroom, whether you’re travelling to the shops, for business, or to any of our local Christmas events.


Better for our local community too

We are delighted to be the first Surrey Heath taxi firm to offer an eco-friendly taxi ride for your journeys around our local areas of Mytchett, Camberley, Fleet and Ash. Travel using electric vehicles is better for our local community and air quality zero harmful emissions, plus the benefits of lower vehicle noise.

We’ve even changed our logo on the car from the usual blue to a vivid green, a visible commitment to combatting climate change from our family-run business.

When you choose to travel in an electric taxi to visit local businesses or collect visitors from the station, it’s a positive reinforcement of your own business environmental ethos. Remember, you can pre-book a taxi anytime online, on the phone or by using our YLC app.


Our Award-Winning 100% Electric SUV

Our new vehicle is a state-of-the-art VW ID.4, winner of the 2021 Car of the Year Award. This latest generation 100% electric taxi has a range of 322 miles on a single charge, so it can drive all day without needing to recharge. You can relax on luxurious seats and with a totally flat rear floor with no central “tunnel” to step over, there’s extra legroom all round. With no gears to change, this impressive electric SUV moves off smoothly and gently – and very quietly too.


How our hassle-free booking app helps the environment too!

Our app saves you time when booking, and ties into our state-of-the-art driver management system. Our integrated system ensures our drivers have minimal ‘dead miles’ (when the taxi is travelling empty), which in turn reduces the number of miles per journey.

Book via the YLC app and you can track your driver in real time, so you know exactly when they will arrive. All our taxis offer in-cab contactless car payments, again reducing idling time, or you can prepay through the app and just jump out and go if you’re in a hurry!
