Ask cab drivers what they think about the UK's leading modern style hackney taxi for sale and the most common answer is simply: “I love my E7!”
The popular E7 taxi, designed and manufactured jointly by Cab Direct and Peugeot, has revolutionised the hackney taxi market to become the UK’s favourite cab.
Leeds E7 driver Mohammed Munir commented: “The first thing I noticed is how smooth the E7 is. The power-steering, handling and manoeuvrability make it a dream drive – I love my E7!”
The E7 drives with superb poise and responsiveness. Numerous independent road tests have highlighted the vehicle’s superb all-round vision, manoeuvrability and handling. All E7s feature electro-hydraulic speed-sensitive power-steering, Peugeot's legendary HDi diesel engine and six-speed gearbox (manual or auto), creating a perfect harmony that’s ideal for the busiest traffic conditions.
With the current economic climate, cab drivers are spending longer hours behind the wheel. E7, however, makes life easier for the hard working cab driver.
Raymond Staff, from Liverpool, explains: “You need a cab that allows you to create the most comfortable driving position. The E7 is brilliant and I no longer have aches after a long shift – I love my E7!”
Raymond is quite correct. The E7 has been created with greater driver comfort in mind. The carefully sculpted driver’s seat comes with height and tilt adjustment which, combined with steering column adjustment, allow you to create your optimum driving position.
With times tough for everybody at the moment, especially taxi drivers, it’s more important now than ever to have an economical cab and the E7 fits the bill perfectly.
E7’s Peugeot HDi engine is quite simply one of the most fuel efficient and environmentally friendly cabs on the market. It can work longer on one tank of fuel than other purpose built taxis.
Pleased Leicester E7 owner, Khalsa Singh, commented: “The fuel economy is much better than my previous cabs. I’m spending less money on diesel and more time on the road earning money – I love my E7!”
With its spacious passenger compartment, it’s not only the drivers who love the E7, customers do too. E7 accommodates six passengers in the rear compartment and guarantees a smooth and comfortable ride.
Passengers also benefit from separately controlled heating, two-way intercom and soft-sit rear tip up seats.
Edinburgh E7 owner David Watt said: “I always get customers commenting on how roomy my E7 is and its generous luggage capacity fits the bill perfectly for travellers. I love my E7!”
All passengers love the E7™ but none more so than disabled passengers. Taxis provide a vital component of the UK’s public transport network, especially for passengers in wheelchairs who often depend on taxis to get about, which is why E7 raises standards in accessibility.
E7 has induction loops for the hard of hearing, manual or cab-operated electric side-steps, high-visibility grab handles, an extra wide doorway, easy to use pull-out wheelchair ramp and quick-attach wheelchair restraints, making securing the wheelchair as easy as possible.
Swindon E7 taxi driver Ian Beare confirms: “Wheelchair access in my E7 is second to none as its EasyGlide™ pull out ramp makes it so quick and easy to use, I love my E7!”
With all these fantastic elements, the E7 cab can accommodate any fare. Never again would you need to turn down a customer.
Aldershot driver Lizzie Thomson commented: “I’m delighted with my E7 as it’s so flexible. Any fare is covered from airport pick-ups and corporate accounts to school runs. I love my E7!”
