London Mayor takes new 'electric' black taxis for spin

The Mayor of London took an exclusive first look at the all-new Range-Extended Electric (REE) Metrocab, a 'clean', electric-powered black cab planning to revolutionise travel in the capital next year.

After taking a test-drive, Boris Johnson said: "Ecotive, with technical expertise from Frazer-Nash, have designed a unique and purpose-built new Metrocab taxi for London with zero-emissions capabilities, which is exactly the type of vehicle I would be delighted to see entering the market."
