Watt a Cab!

June 4, 2012

A cabbie for many years, David Watt is now based at Scotland’s busiest airport.  Having more and more ‘flyers’ to deal with, David is delighted that his Peugeot E7™ is well suited to passengers with serious luggage requirements.


Edinburgh Airport welcomes over nine million passengers a year, many flying in on business and holiday trips.  However it’s not only the city, the people or the Scottish weather that first impress – it’s the Peugeot E7™.

David comments: “The E7™ really is an excellent vehicle.  I always get customers commenting on how roomy it is and its ideal having a generous luggage capacity”.

The E7™ fits the bill perfectly for travellers as it has bags of space, thanks to the EasySlide™ rear seat which allows even more room for loading cases out of harm’s way.

Comfort is Key

It’s been a frustrating time for Edinburgh taxi drivers lately with added congestion to deal with as a result of the city’s tram works, making for longer journey times and longer hours behind the wheel.  However with E7’s inspired vehicle design, being uncomfortable will never be an issue again.

David comments: “I work long, 12 hour shifts, but my E7™ is incredibly comfortable and a joy to drive”.

The E7™ black cab has a carefully sculpted driver’s seat with active, pump-action height and reach adjustment which, combined with steering column adjustment, allows you to create your optimum driving position.

World Leader

Once landed, a customer usually makes the 30 minute journey from the airport to the city centre.  David does this around 12 times a shift, which can be tough on fuel costs.  However with Peugeot’s world-leading diesel technology under the bonnet, E7™ is more economical than ever before. The Euro 5 E7™ offers a class leading blend of performance and economy and returns an impressive 42.8 mpg on the combined cycle, making it one of the most cost effective hackneys on the market.

E7 taxis work longer – and earn more – on one tank of fuel than a TX4 – making a real difference to your pocket, day after day.

There’s a choice of three models in the E7 range – S, SE and XS. All are now available with either 6-speed manual or full automatic transmission.

David concludes: “The guys at Cab Direct are great.  Any issue I’ve had has been resolved quickly and the service has always been first class.

This is my second E7™ from Cab Direct and I’m looking forward to thousands of miles of stress-free work in the years ahead”.
