CityCab





How how about this one for a strange looking design for a future taxi, a bit of an ugly bug but you never know you may see something similar on the streets in the future. The five-seater employs Toyota’s hybrid powertrain technology and is designed for the utmost ease in entering and exiting the cab. Using an air suspension system, the cab floor can be lowered to a desired height during a stop, which makes for better wheelchair accessibility. The ultra light body is made of a carbon-fiber composite, which weighs 75% less than a standard steel body. The cab is still an R&D project, not scheduled for commercial release.

the cab design looks interesting but i wonder if they have taken the driver into consideration too?
