A startup called Gravity has launched a customized Mustang Mach-E into the New York City Taxi fleet.

The all-electric SUV is the first of 50 Mustang Mach-Es and Tesla Model Ys the company plans to deploy in the city and has begun picking up passengers in The Big Apple.
The vehicle is an all-wheel-drive Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 with the extended battery pack option, which has a driving range of 312 miles between charges, which is nearly double the distance a typical cab covers per day.

Along with the requisite yellow and black paint job, the Mustang Mach-E also features a panoramic glass roof for sightseeing and a rear seat entertainment system display with music, videos, maps and a selfie cam.
Gravity has a charging base in midtown Manhattan where the vehicle can fill up overnight and riders pay the same rates as any taxi in the system.
Several Tesla Model 3 sedans are already operated by other NYC Taxi companies.
