Autonomous electric taxis will need most of the same characteristics of these urban BEVs – for example, when such a taxi is booked, the user will provide the intended route and thus a small battery BEV will be directed to the user. In addition, there will be a large market for autonomous two person taxis, which because of additional weight reductions makes small battery BEVs even more viable.
However Bytesnap is not predicting that all EVs will be like this, but more for second cars or autonomous taxis.
