Michael Carver, from Hove in East Sussex, has been a cabbie for ten years, working for Brighton & Hove Streamline Taxis, which he proudly deems ‘the best taxi circuit in Brighton’. He had been driving LTI’s TX black cab but decided recently that he fancied a change – and it would seem he’s been more than happy with his decision ever since!
Michael explains: “I wanted to change my TX cab because it’s not as high-tech as the modern E7 taxi. Initially I was worried about moving from what some people see as the iconic London black cab but I haven’t been disappointed in the slightest. In my book, the E7 is the ideal taxi for the job.”
Designed and manufactured jointly by Peugeot and Cab Direct, the E7 cab has been built with the modern day driver in mind – something which Michael has definitely noticed. He comments: “First off, I thought the E7 looked stunning. Now that I’m driving it, I have to say that the comfort levels are unsurpassed too.
“I love the spec in the vehicle, particularly the air-con in the passenger compartment. The wheelchair access is excellent too – the ramp is so easy to use. Everything about it has clearly been very well thought out.”
With its specially crafted driver’s seat, offering active, pump-action height and tilt adjustment and extra lumbar support, the E7 hackney taxi offers excellent driver comfort. Your passengers are also assured of a relaxing and enjoyable ride thanks to E7’s excellent road holding and modern suspension.
Bags of Space
Your passengers will also enjoy the benefits and comfort that the space in the E7 taxi affords them. Not only does the rear compartment provide plenty of room for a full passenger load, but E7 also allows you to create even more space thanks to the EasySlide™ rear seat, offering additional luggage capacity for those hotel and station taxi fares.
Michael comments: “The amount of space in the E7 is phenomenal. With the rear seat in the forward position, I can carry six passengers and all their luggage comfortably. Whenever I have an airport run, customers always notice the difference. In fact, even the kids on my school run love it as they can play cards in the back on the way!”
A Winner from Cab Direct
Michael continues in his praise: “I really can’t fault the E7 and I recommend it whenever I can. The service I received at Cab Direct was fantastic too. I’ve been very impressed by how quickly enquires are dealt with. I haven’t been let down by their after sales either, whether it’s parts or service, everything is just as it should be.”
