The development of BEV taxis in China is at an early stage. Operators and the government lack a suitable model selection strategy when facing so many BEV models. Therefore, this paper proposes a BEV taxi model selection method, which uses an improved EW-AHP comprehensive weighting method to empower the indicators, and uses the VIKOR multi-indicator decision-making method to evaluate the selected models. The case study shows that the method has high scientificity and practicability, and provides taxi operators with scientific theoretical guidance on BEV taxi selection.
