New and Used Taxis for Sale at Glasgow Open Day


September 27, 2010

Cab Direct’s 18 acre production plant was the venue of choice for the latest taxi sales roadshow, which took place earlier this September.

The event showcased the Cab Direct taxi centre’s latest developments to two of the UK’s best loved black cabs for sale – the stunning Peugeot E7™ and the original and best Mercedes Vito taxi, the M8™.

Taxi drivers from Scotland’s largest city were invited to test-drive the newly improved black cabs.  There were taxi sales representatives aplenty on hand to meet with the hungry cabbies, who were delighted that the now famous Cab Direct barbecue was making its second appearance of the year, despite the rain!

Many taxi drivers also took advantage of the free cab wash on offer, which also went down a storm (pun intended) given the weather!

Taxi Innovation

All round a great day was had by all and the new features were given a firm stamp of approval by the taxi drivers in attendance.  Of particular interest was Cab Direct’s latest engineering innovation, the new FareAssist™ quick release door system.  Allowing taxi drivers to unlatch their passenger’s doors from the comfort of their seat at the touch of a button,  FareAssist™ now comes as standard on both the M8™ Mercedes Vito taxi and the Peugeot E7™ black cab.

This fantastic new feature is only one of seven that will now come as standard on new Peugeot E7™ taxis for sale.  For more information on the others fantastic additions with Cab Direct’s latest model refresh, click here.

E7 Encore™ Used Taxis

The event was also host to the launch of Cab Direct’s new E7 Encore™ range of used taxis for sale.  Fully factory reconditioned, guaranteed to taxi test and now including Cab Direct’s specialised and unique two-year, unlimited mileage used taxi warranty, the E7 Encore™ is far more than a second-hand cab.  It will arrive with you providing the guarantee of complete reassurance and peace of mind.

Commenting on the success of the day Cab Direct’s National Sales Manager, David Facenna, said: “It’s always great to have a roadshow in Glasgow in the very city where we build our modern black cabs.  It’s great to meet the local taxi drivers face to face and to be able to show them all our new developments – innovations which have come as a direct result from feedback from our customers themselves.”

David continues: “The seven new features on the Peugeot E7 are already proving a bit hit with cabbies across the UK and look set to bring a steady influx in taxi sales over the coming months.”
