Student designer Lucaciu from the Melbourne RMIT University has invisioned the taxi of the future which will be enviromentally friendly, runnning on hydrogen and sport the very latest in technology enhancements. The vehicle has been carefully designed to address the needs of the typical Aussie passenger.
With all modern car accessories in place, which include GPS, night riding system, passenger entertainment system, information hub, Smart Card system and disability access, the taxi doesn’t pollute the environment in any way. The vehicle is propelled by hydrogen fuel cells and an electric motor that gets its fuel from roof-mounted solar cells. The electric batteries can also be recharged in a more conventional way by plugging the vehicle into a wall socket.
