Toyota gives Japanese taxis a taste of London

JPN Taxi Concept

JPN Taxi Concept Japanese automobile brand Toyota have developed a next generation rival to London’s iconic black cab, with their JPN Taxi Concept about to receive its public debut at the Tokyo Motor Show on the 20th November.

The environmentally astute LPG hybrid vehicle has been designed to integrate easily with dense urban traffic, also enhancing passenger comfort with a low floor and electric sliding door. Catering for 5 passengers, the innovative taxi will also be fitted with in-car screens displaying route and fare information.

The JPN Taxi Concept washes existing Japanese taxi design with elements of the London black cab, taking into account the Japanese government’s initiative to make vehicles and buildings more accessible for disabled pedestrians and children.
