NYC's Leading Provider of Conversion Taxis Leads Way With New Pacifica Hybrid Cab

FR Conversions new Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Taxi

"80 e-mpg plus dramatically reduced CO2 emissions coupled with a more comfortable ride for New Yorker's with special needs is what the new FR Pacifica Hybrid delivers." Wayne Taylor, FR Conversions.

With over 13,450 cabs on its streets New York City is, without a doubt, the taxicab capitol of the world. Each NYC cab averages 70,000 miles annually for an estimated cumulative odometer reading of 940 million miles a year. These numbers provide a dramatic backdrop to the significance of the new Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid taxi, converted to accommodate those with special needs, being unveiled by FR Conversions of Westminster, Maryland.

In comparison to current conversion cabs serving the city averaging 22 mpg in city driving, the new 2016 FR Pacifica Hybrid delivers an average of 80 e-mpg on city streets. The result is an estimated 27.5 million gallons of gas saved per year. Given the fact that 20 pounds of CO2 are emitted per gallon of gas burned, the introduction of the new FR Pacifica Hybrid would represent a potential reduction in CO2 emissions in NYC of up to 500 million pounds a year.

The advantages of the 2016 FR Pacific Hybrid extend beyond fuel savings and improvement in air quality. It also offers a much easier, smoother entry and exit process for New York City taxi riders with special needs.

More Spacious Riding Conditions: The new FR Conversion Pacifica Hybrid provides those with special needs a roomier, more comfortable ride while also providing secure storage space for their wheelchair.

Multiple Passenger Accommodation: In order to accommodate a special needs passenger many current city cabs need to retract the seating arrangements for others. The end result being, the special needs passenger must ride alone. Not so with the FR Conversion Pacifica hybrid. Special needs riders can ride with friends, associates or others - just like anyone else.

Up to 80 miles a gallon with a range of 530 per tank full. Independent rear suspension to deal with the often rough New York City Street conditions. Moon roof, more space for wheelchairs without compromising special needs rider comfort, seating for up to three additional passengers, a hands free sliding door and so much more. FR Conversions status as the leading provider of conversion taxi cabs in NYC will be strengthened as soon as the new FR Pacifica hybrid hits the street of New York.
