Volkswagen Taxi Concept


Volkswagen revealed a new example of their ‘World Taxis’ series based on the Up! concept in London.

This unique taxi of the future is electric of course and gets a 115 PS with 45 kW/h batteries and a range of 186 miles (estimated) and projected top speed of 74 mph.

The Concept, which measures 3,730 mm in length, 1,680 mm in width and 1,600 mm in height, is shorter than the current smallest Volkswagen, the Fox. The VW Taxi Concept is designed to meet the challenges faced by vehicles in modern cities, with ever tighter restrictions on space and emissions.

The major functions of the vehicle including climate, entertainment and fare information are all grouped onto one touchscreen display mounted next to the driver.  In the back a similar screen relays information to the passengers on their route and their immediate environment.  Despite its modest size, the Volkswagen Taxi Concept feels luxurious, with use of cream leather and individual, as opposed to bench, seats.
