Onwards and Upwards with the Peugeot Premier

April 26, 2012

Liberty Cab owner Nicola Erickson is enjoying great success as Jersey’s newest taxi boss and the pride of her pack are her two brand new Peugeot Premiers.

Queen of Jersey Taxis

The Peugeot Premier™, with its impressive Euro 5 HDi diesel engine and superb 58.9mpg, is one of the reasons Nicola’s business is doing terrifically well, despite only being open for a few months.  A delighted Nicola says: “I chose the Premier™ because it was the best model for the various different fares we expected to get and it’s not let us down”.

Liberty Cabs has a total of 11 cars and Nicola is delighted with the fuel efficiency of the Peugeot Premiers. She enthuses: “Running costs are very important and the Premiers™ are leading the way in terms of cheapest diesel costs”.

Any Type of Cab Fare

Nicola continues: “We’ve only been open for business for two months but we’ve already negotiated corporate taxi accounts and have regular customers requiring wheelchair access, so the Premier has been invaluable”.

The Peugeot Premier excels in its versatility. Any fare is covered with its excellent use of space. Customers benefit from bags of luggage room and wheelchair occupants can use the FlatFold™ ramp which folds completely flat to the floor when not in use, meaning there’s no compromise on passenger or luggage carrying capacity.

Nicola says: “What’s fantastic is that despite being so roomy the Premier is perfect for getting about the tight lanes and streets in Jersey”.


Nicola’s eleven members of staff have nothing but high praise for the Premier™ and say it’s made the challenging driving conditions in Jersey more enjoyable.

Nicola explains: “Jersey is notorious for hills and traffic jams. We’re already limited to 40 miles per hour but with the heavy traffic and steep hills it’s sometimes impossible to get near 40 which can be frustrating for drivers. However, the Premier’s automatic drive makes fares so much easier”.

Comfort is also a top priority with the Peugeot Premier™. With height adjustable driver’s seat, MP3 compatible CD player and innovative storage space, the Premier is a pleasure to drive.

Cab Direct

Nicola concludes by saying: “The last two months have gone by so fast but everything was made easier by Cab Direct. After one quick phone call they handled everything and I received my two vehicles promptly, allowing my business to hit the road running.”
