Guess who I’ve got in my cab?

by Nigel Wigmore

Guess who I’ve got in my cab?
FORMER Henley MP and now London Mayor Boris Johnson has taken an exclusive first look at the all-new Range-Extended Electric (REE) Metrocab from UK-based Ecotive and its technology partner Frazer-Nash Research.

Mr Johnson also couldn’t resist the temptation to get behind the wheel for a short drive in the nearby car park at City Hall, demonstrating that the Metrocab is ready for market.

Designed, engineered and built in-house by Ecotive and Frazer-Nash in Mytchett, Surrey, the new taxi for London is set to take to the city’s streets as a trial fleet early in 2014.

Mr Johnson said: “Ecotive, with technical expertise from Frazer-Nash, has designed a unique and purpose-built new Metrocab taxi for London with zero emissions capabilities, which is exactly the type of vehicle I would be delighted to see entering the market.”
