With so many Ford dealerships under our umbrella, the Preston Automotive Group is always thrilled to hear the latest innovations from the Ford Motor Company. Ford recently introduced two brand new fuel-efficient taxi models. They have introduced both a hybrid and a diesel taxi model that are sure to forever change the landscape of taxi production. The all-new Ford Fusion Hybrid Taxi was built specifically for this purpose and includes parts such as the suspension and brakes that were designed for the hard-working, strenuous life of the 2019 Police Responder Hybrid Sedan. You can also count on the standard rearview camera to make parking easier and a mounting plate so that you can quickly attach and secure your taxi meter or any other equipment you need. The Ford Fusion Hybrid Taxi is projected to get an astonishing EPA-estimated combined fuel economy rating of 38 MPG.
The brand new Transit Connect Taxi can be outfitted with an available 1.5-liter EcoBlue® diesel engine, which is predicted to get an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy rating of 30 MPG. This vehicle brings you seating for up to five in the flexible, comfortable interior. You’ll be getting over 60 cubic-feet of cargo volume behind the second row, which is more than the room found in the Nissan NV200 Taxi. This model also comes with first-row side curtain airbags, recessed second-row seating, an optional roof access hole for signage, and a taxi upfit wiring harness along with a reverse sensing system. Passengers can have easy access with the standard dual sliding side doors and the low vehicle floor. You can also use the Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier program to make this model wheelchair accessible. With these two revolutionary taxi models, the Ford Motor Company should be your go-to taxi provider for years to come.
