We visited Penso MB Taxi Factory in Coventry this week to discuss MB Euro 5 upgrade progress, over a third of these cabs have been upgraded now.
We spoke to the drivers visiting for upgrades all seemed pleased, and impressed with the friendly experienced Penso staff. Roy McMaster Head of taxi dept showed them around, and explained the upgrade procedure in progress.
We met Penso business development director with their cab designer to discuss our members suggestions & ideas for improvements now being incorporated into the MB EU 6 taxi derivative coming next year.
With VitoTaxiClub members input the next MB taxi will be the best taxi ever. Fuel consumption around 39 mpg in town – up to 46 mpg on a run – with new stop/start tech, and 7 speed gearbox etc.
10 of our members tested the vehicle at MB Live event at Millbrook proving grounds this summer as guests of MB. We were all impressed by it’s looks, and performance.
More news coming soon.
