Taxi Porsche in Bangkok Thailand.



But it's viral marketing by samsung.


Taxi Meter in Thailand standard is Toyota, Nissan or Brand of Japan.

Here is a photo from Mannheim, Germany. Rather old taxis about 8 year old MB's.
Also nothing except the lantern on the the roof that indicates the car is a taxicab.

Maybe. Actually, this paint scheme is one of many private taxi companies in Moscow.

I agree something happend in the 90ies. MB made the A & B series, which deviate from the original MB-design that is a comfortable limosine like car.


taxi in Hamburg, Germany photo taken by me June 18, this summer.

In Sweden MB always was and is a popular taxicab next to Volvo. Nowadays a taxi may be everything from a small VW Golf, MPV or giant SUV.

I think the best taxicar regulations are to be find in conservative London. All taxis look the same, so you know what a taxi should look like.

Yeah, London (as well as other part of England) has nice police cars but only cheap taxis. Don't know if they do that to conserve the historic look or most of the money are given to police department and public transportation sector.

3 parisian taxis crossing Rue La Fayette, in the early morning hours of june 18.
No commercial stickers on the taxis, why? it could generate some extra revenue for the taxi-company.





Environmental friendly PRIUS in Milano, Italy. Not very suitable as a taxi, to small car.

Mercs were known for their reliability, longievity and uncomplicated construction for several decades. And with diesel engines they were cheap to run. That's why they became so popular in taxi service across Europe. Even in communism time here in Poland, when car (especialy western one) was a limited acces good, second hand MBs were quite popular and very much desired among taxi drivers. Mercedes is not only a luxury car here, but (usually as low spec. diesel) also a workhorse. Unfortunately quality of MB cars dropped significantly in last 10-15 years. As I've mentioned before I've noticed decreasing popularity of mercs among polish taxi drivers.
