Any one like the new electric of London Taxi 2011?

New London Taxi has been unveiled in the form of the Volkswagen London Taxi The man behind the project, Klaus Bischoff, Head of Design at Volkswagen, unveiled the car in Central London.
New London Taxi designed to meet the challenges faced by vehicles in modern cities, with ever tighter restrictions on space and emissions, the Volkswagen London Taxi powered by an electric motor fed by lithium-ion batteries. With a capacity of 45 kW/h the batteries allow the electric motor to generate a maximum power output of 115 PS, translating to a theoretical top speed of 74 mph.
The range of the Volkswagen London Taxi is 186 miles between charges with an 80 per cent charge taking around one hour to complete.

The new taxi which measures 3,730 mm in length, 1,680 mm in width and 1,600 mm in height, is shorter than the current smallest Volkswagen, the Fox. However its long wheelbase and minimal front and rear overhangs allow it to have a spacious cabin with room for two adults to be seated in comfort plus an allocated area for luggage. At the front, the driving environment is similarly spacious, an impression emphasised by the large glass area.

The theme running throughout the vehicle is simplicity, with an elegant, clutter-free look to the interior. The major functions of the vehicle including climate, entertainment and fare information are all grouped onto one touchscreen display mounted next to the driver. In the back a similar screen relays information to the passengers on their route and their immediate environment. Despite its modest size, the Volkswagen London Taxi Concept feels luxurious, with use of cream leather and individual, as opposed to bench, seats.
Any how I don’t know why I like the old version of London taxi more than this new but I think many people may dislike this new one too
