Details: This bug-like vehicle may become a common sight over the coming months. Caught passing Acton Town Station on 21st June 2010 (on its way back to Acton Works), WX10JSV is a Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric car in the livery of TfL Streets. This is the first all-electric (as opposed to hybrid drive) vehicle for the TfL fleet, and it was one of four that were launched at the London Eye later that month. The small lettering on the bodyside is not too clear but appears to read 'Part of the new Transport for London electric vehicle fleet'. The livery is the same as latterly used on Toyota Prius cars, though the orange stripe is rather cut-off at the front. Perhaps it could have 'swooped' around the front! At the launch the Mayor announced ambitious plans to introduce many more electric vehicles. TfL is expecting some electric vans from Smith and Modec, as well as further Toyota Priuses, soon.
