TAXI|SANTIAGO CHILE


The most common taxi models in Santiago, with yellow roof, black body and a distinctive orange plate.

If you come to Chile, more precisely to Santiago, and you want a taxi, take THIS cars with that description, don't take the ones who are entire black with a sign in the roof and yellow plate, because that is a collective taxi, you take it with strangers and has an established route and established rates. Just in case because I hear that some tourists make this mistake and then they surprise when someone gets in, to what they thought, it was her taxi.

Like this one, don't take this if you want a Taxi.

It seems like Volga taxis also were popular in Latin America.

Loving those Moscow taxis!

Taxis especially in Helsinki compared to rest of the Finland tend to be mercs with over 45% market share. E class being by far the most popular.
Don't know about the most recent numbers, but it feels like Volvos are not quite as popular anymore and have been replaced by variety of brands, like bigger Skodas and Toyotas.

I see that taxis in Helsinki dont have any stickers, the only thing that make them taxi vehicles are the taxi roofsign. No taxi licenseplate either.

In Sweden most taxis are MB E-class, Volvo V70 and VW Passat. With the V70 getting old, fewer taxis will be Volvos in the nextcoming years, the new V60 is not a very suitable taxivehicle, its too low and more of a sporty drivers car.

VW Passat Taxi 020 at Rålambsvägen

Odd taxi. An old man driving an old car, it says it´s a cheap taxi.

Here's a prototype of what could be the future taxi for Singapore - An electric taxi that can drive 200kms with a 15 minute charge.

"EVA" is the first electric vehicle specifically designed as a taxi for tropical megacities. This is the result of a collaboration between Singapore's Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Germany's Technische Universität München (TUM), and supported by Singapore’s National Research Foundation.

EVA was built in Singapore.

Its a little ugly, and lacks anything major. It's good that its electric, and has special mobile features to control music, but its very underwhelming.

London beats SG by miles. Is it driverless? Can it really fit that many passengers? The biggest pluses are that its electric (but easy to convert existing models), has ample room for luggage, and has a cool child seat though I wonder where London ranks on this front.

Other than that, it looks like a tata nano. I would rather have some Tuks, Minis, and
People Carriers roaming around.
