The very cool Tesla Model Y has joined the fleet of yellow Gravity taxis in New York. Gravity Inc, a company specializing in sustainable mobility and electric vehicle infrastructure, has added Tesla Model Y vehicles to its fleet. The company already has Ford Mustang Mach-E crossover vehicles in its fleet. Now, the addition of the sporty Y model will definitely boost Gravity’s appeal.
The Model Y has been facelifted with Gravity’s signature rally yellow paint, and the car is fitted with a panoramic roof that provides a spectacular driving experience. Rear-seat passengers can adjust climate controls, take selfies, listen to music and watch videos via a bespoke 22-inch tablet.
The futuristic Model Y also features driver-focused AI technology that identifies and prevents distracted driving while ensuring safe driving.
“This is another big first for Gravity, reinventing what it’s like to take a taxi in the biggest city in the world. The Model Y is the first Tesla that truly meets all of our expectations for cabin ride quality. New Yorkers and visitors will be able to travel in one of the most advanced vehicles ever built, with custom features unique to Gravity that deliver a first-class experience for a standard taxi fare,” said Moshe Cohen, Founder and CEO of Gravity, in a statement, as reported InsideEVs.
New York-headquartered Gravity last year launched the world’s first fleet-based zero-emission taxi service and dedicated charging infrastructure for battery-electric vehicles (BEVs). Gravity currently charges its fleet of electric vehicles at dedicated charging stations in Manhattan Plaza in New York. But the company plans to operate additional charging sites in the future so that its fleet can be recharged quickly overnight, outside peak hours.
Gravity also builds its own charging equipment and claims its chargers surpass Tesla’s superchargers in efficiency.
