Edinburgh black cab driver Gary McIntosh has learnt a good deal about different taxis for sale since coming into the trade seven years ago. And his considered opinion? You can’t look past the purpose-built E7 taxi.
Commenting on why he chose to go for another of the purpose-built favourites from Cab Direct, Gary says: “In my second year of taxiing I made the change from a TX to an E7 and I’ve never looked back.
“When I decided it was time to change my vehicle earlier this year, Cab Direct was my first port of call. Their vehicles, taxi sales staff and after-sales service are first class.”
Gary continues: “In the end, the E7’s wheelchair accessible ramp was the clincher. It couldn’t be quicker or easier to use.”
Taxi Sales Benefits
One of the biggest plus points about the E7™ for Gary is its fuel economy. He comments: “When I changed over to the E7, one of the first things I noticed was how much I was saving on diesel. For a hackney cab the fuel efficiency is fantastic.”
As pioneers in diesel technology since 1928, it’s not surprising that Peugeot have mastered the blend of performance and economy. Powered by the latest generation of diesel engine, the Peugeot E7™ is hugely efficient, allowing you to work longer and earn more on one tank of fuel than with other black cabs.
This fantastic economy combines with superb performance to make E7’s 2.0 litre HDi engine perfect for both driveability and responsiveness.
When you’re spending long hours behind the wheel, the important of comfort quickly becomes apparent. After all, your vehicle is like your office. As such, the Peugeot E7™ has been designed with driver comfort very much front of mind.
With its top specification driver’s seat, with height and tilt adjustment and additional lumbar support, you’re sure to find the perfect driving position. E7’s multi-function heater and air conditioning system mean you’ll also be able to find your ideal working temperature – perfect!
For optimum convenience the E7™ taxi also comes with one-touch electric windows, steering wheel mounted audio controls and numerous handy storage areas, including a centre console, allowing you to keep your driving space clutter free. There’s even a dash mounted cup holder so you can enjoy a steaming hot cuppa on the move.
Gary says: “The comfort in the E7 black cab is absolutely fantastic – both for the driver and for the passengers. The amount of space in the back is superb. Six customers can easily travel in comfort, even with a full luggage load. In fact, quite often customers specifically want to travel in the E7 for that extra bit of space.”
So, whether it’s access, space, comfort or economy, the Peugeot E7™ has it all.
