The historic city of Prague has many sights to take in, for example the Prague Castle, the picturesque Charles Bridge or the Astronomical Clock. During the Iron Curtain era, it was one of the most visited cities of Europe. Although reliant on a tram and metro system, one of the best modes for transport is the taxi. Based on this observation was a recent event called the Prague Taxi Design and two really outstanding entries are listed after the jump….
Taxi Visitor is based on the premise that tourists driving into the city from the airport, like to enjoy a ride where they can take in the sights and sounds on the first go. The abundant spacing and height of the cab allow for a full view and cast and everlasting impression. The color schemes for the cab are inspired by the beige plaster of the Lesser Town houses and their darker retaining wall.
The adaptable Call Taxi-e accommodates up to six passengers and can be used for cargo services as well. The design features sliding doors and a ramp for wheelchair. Expanded windows and an airy cabin ensure a pleasant ride. The wheel driven motors are powered by batteries that are fueled by solar cells hidden on the roof.
