Taxi owners and drivers have welcomed the launch of the all-new Peugeot Premier(TM).
Built by taxi specialist Cab Direct in association with Peugeot, the Premier offers a practical and stylish cab at a refreshingly keen price tag. With more and more cab licensing authorities requiring disabled facilities in public hire taxis, the Premier also hits the mark with full wheelchair access.
What's great about Cab Direct's Premier is that it can be a normal-looking, five-seater cab one minute and a fully wheelchair accessible vehicle the next. The Premier is also the first taxi to feature Cab Direct's revolutionary new FlexiFold™ rear access ramp. Unlike other wheelchair taxis, when not in use for a disabled passenger the Premier's rear ramp folds completely flat to the vehicle floor - leaving the taxi driver with bags of useable luggage space.
Long shifts behind the wheel can be a bind but the new Premier cab makes working life as easy as possible. The smooth drive is all you'd expect of a good, mid-range saloon. Ample door mirrors and a generous windscreeen make for excellent all-round visibility, while Peugeot's legendary HDi diesel power-plant delivers plenty of pulling power and responsiveness for a pleasurable drive, even when carrying a full passenger load. For peace of mind, there's also the benefit of ABS braking plus electronic brake-force distribution, meaning added stability and safety, even in adverse road conditions.
Feel at Home
We all need those creature comforts to get us through the day and the Premier makes sure cab drivers don't miss out. The driver's seat, for a start, is carefully shaped and height and reach adjustable. There's a good quality radio-CD, with remote-mounted controls, which is also MP3 compatible, so cabbies can treat their passengers to their own choice in music. Electric front windows also come as standard.
The top-spec Premier SE taxi also brings the added advantage of air conditioning. The SE also comes ready fitted with taxi meter, floor mats and taxi top sign.
In addition to its great spec and excellent fuel consumption, the best thing of all about the Premier taxi is its price tag. From just £12,495 + VAT, Premier is a special-purpose, wheelchair accessible cab for the price of a standard saloon. Now that is tempting!
