      Adam Patrick, London black cab driver

      "I am saving a fortune on fuel. In fact, using home off-peak charging facilities, provided by British Gas, my last 2,800 miles has cost just £43.61; the equivalent of 1.6p per mile. With the 150-mile range in the summer I can do a full 9-hour shift without having to charge up."

    • Taxi-Point

      "It’s a functional modern taxi that 'future proofs' the driver going forwards. From a drive perspective, it’s a step up from the diesel taxis of past. No question. It’s also more comfortable for the driver. It’s also very economical to run."


    Is VAT included?

    Yes, all our published prices include VAT. For new vehicles, and many recent model used or ex-demo vehicles we will also deliver free of charge to any mainland UK address. 

    Do the larger wheelchairs fit in?

    The standard wheelchair will fit, the aperture is 1200mm high by 750mm wide, which meets Transport for London requirements. Any special chairs or larger electric chairs will not fit.

    What is the range in the real world?

    The feedback from drivers says that, depending on the type of operation, it will be 150 to 185 true miles per charge (the vehicle will self-charge more in City type operations).

    Is it an 8-seater?

    No. The vehicle is a standard 5 seat black cab (3 rear seats and 2 drop-downs).

    Is there a passenger seat in the front?

    No. Very few hackneys have a front passenger seat. In this taxi the seating area is too small. The Black Cab design does not allow for a passenger seat and it would not comply with Black Cab technical requirements.

    Can I get this with Manual transmission?

    No. The Dynamo is Automatic transmission only. 

    What’s the seating formation?
    Dynamo seating

    3 seat rear bench plus 2 drop-seats on bulkhead.

    How many can travel with wheelchair on board?

    With a wheelchair user on board, the Dynamo Taxi can carry two additional passengers.

    What are the running costs like?

    The average taxi driver in London covers a distance of 90 to 120 miles a day, spending roughly £25 in fuel a day. Using a home charger, it will cost Dynamo Taxi drivers £3-£6 in electricity to cover the same distance, saving drivers nearly £20 a day in running costs alone. Charging fees will vary between energy providers, with the average home electricity tariff at 14.8p per kWh.  The Dynamo Taxi features a 40kWh lithium-ion battery.

    Can I trade in my old vehicle?

    It’s very likely you’ll get the best price selling your vehicle privately. However, if you'd like to find out whether we will offer you a trade price, please call 01525 717 695.

    Can you deliver this to Northern Ireland?

    I'm afraid not. We can deliver to any mainland UK port where you can pick up the vehicle. Or, if you fly into Luton, we will pick you up from the airport, collect your vehicle, and you can drive away. We'll also provide a full tank of fuel. 

    Can I buy the taxi on finance?

    We can introduce you to a limited number of lenders who may be able to offer you finance facilities for your purchase, where the cost of the vehicle is split into monthly payments. Credit is subject to status.. Try our free credit checker on the button on this page.
