Dynamo motors have released a new electric wheelchair accessible vehicle (WAV) aimed at the private hire industry throughout the UK.

The company, well known for its popular fully electric Nissan black cab conversion, also hinted that a new model of electric taxi is well into development.

Images of the new Peugeot E-Traveller, which has been specially designed for private hire vehicle (PHV) operator and local authority use, was shared on social media.

The vehicle has a WAV ramp built into the rear of the large converted black van and can seat between five and seven people along with the wheelchair.

It is the second WAV model to be offered to the PHV sector following an earlier converted Mercedes-Benz.

Taxi drivers in London and across the UK are eagerly awaiting news of the next Dynamo taxi to arrive on the market. Long-term, the all-electric Nissan Dynamo taxi will no longer be produced as Nissan cease production of e-NV200 Evalia van.

In February, Dynamo Motors moved quickly to assure the taxi industry that a new donor vehicle manufacturer was being sourced with a view to re-enter the taxi industry market as soon as possible.

John Heath, Dynamo Motor Company Market Development Manager, said on social media: “We are delighted to launch our new fully electric WAV 7 seat or 5 seat and a wheel chair. Peugeot e traveller/Vauxhall Vivaro - opening so many new markets for Private Hire Operators and local authorities. Flexible finance options available.”

A London taxi driver asked: “Have you forgot about Black cabs now and just concentrating on private hire?”

Graeme James, Dynamo Motor Company Business & Product Advocate, replied: “Not at all. The Dynamo Taxi V2 is in development.”

Heath also assured the cabbie: “We will have a new offering.”
