- not sure if you will have seen this ,but an interesting review of the new 'London' (or black cab
) taxi -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOxnJQP2_0E&t=17s
The original company (who were going bust) were taken over by Geeley - who also own Lotus and Volvo (I think !).
The cab is an all alloy, bonded construction with all electric drive but a petrol engine to generate power.Lots of modern touches like re-gen. braking, lane assist, etc.
Personally,I think it is great to see an iconic design being brought up to date....
