There’s no mistaking the time of year in Jersey this Christmas thanks to local cabbie Robert Marie, who’s Peugeot E7 taxi is donning the streets with some fantastically festive decorations. With Santa’s sleigh up top and a snow flake covered tailgate, Robert and his E7 spread Christmas cheer across the island.
Robert comments: “I decorate my taxi every year and it always gets everyone laughing. My customers absolutely love it. In fact, generally they can hear me coming before they see me as the Christmas tunes play from up top. What better way to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year – it’s great fun!
High Praise from Robert
Clearly the Christmas theme proves a big hit in Jersey but what about the other 11 months of the year? Robert explains: “Santa and Rudolph aside, the feedback I get about the E7 from my customers is great. They’re always commenting how comfortable and roomy the cab is.”
Tailor made for the professional driver, the Peugeot E7 cab has been designed with the modern day cabbie in mind. Standard features such as E7’s top specification driver’s seat, electric one touch windows and air conditioning combine with E7’s spacious interior to guarantee you and your passengers a relaxing ride every fare.
With Peugeot’s 2.0 litre diesel engine under the bonnet, the E7 taxi drives like a dream. The legendary responsiveness of the HDi engine combines with Peugeot’s latest electro hydraulic speed-sensitive power steering and ultra smooth six-speed grearbox to create a nimble and manoeuvrable cab that’s ideal for the busiest traffic conditions. The raised driver position plus large windscreen and side windows also help create exceptional visibility, especially useful in busy traffic.
Robert adds: “I’ve been driving taxis for years now and in my books, there’s no better hackney than the E7 – it’s the perfect taxi partner. I’ve had my current vehicle for a couple of years now and it’s as smooth as ever. I really can’t fault the E7.”
Robert concludes: “I’ve received fantastic service from Cab Direct over the years too. I wish one and all a merry Christmas and a very happy New Year!”
