As the UK taxi industry takes its first steps into the world of electric motoring, the choice of vehicles available to hackney cabbies remains somewhat limited. However, north-west taxi firm Car ’n’ Cab has released a new model that fits the bill for cleaner and greener journeys throughout the UK. The fully Electric Vehicle (EV) Plug-in self-charging hybrid Ford E-Cabbi.

Drivers can choose a distinctive looking taxi that can seat between six and seven passengers comfortably in a number of seating configurations. Eyebrows will be raised at the fully electric driven taxi that can achieve up to 315-miles-per-day combined.

Licensed cabbies can enjoy the M1 permanent screen that separates the passenger and driver cabins. The vehicle is not set up as a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle (WAV), but is ideal for contract non-wheelchair work and drivers licensed in authorities that do not require WAV taxis. The cab does have a handy buggy restraint design option.

The modern taxi has LED lighting, intercom, sided floating non-slip floor, additional pay area lighting and other mood lighting. The taximeter connected lighting provides a purpose built feel too.

There are other safety features which includes four yellow grab handles, side step extension and LED lighting and additional door handles.
