I rode in an earlier LTI taxi last December and enjoyed it, so I don't doubt that the new version is a comfortable ride. Richard Wilson, of Tolver Taxis in Norwich, is also on record as saying the distinctive-looking taxi has been a good buy (he ordered one without a test drive after hearing 30 had been sold on day one) for his passengers and the environment. He said he likes the low-emission vehicle, which is powered by an Italian-made VM Euro IV compliant turbodiesel engine that puts out either 211 grams of CO2 per kilometer with a manual transmission version or 233 gm/k with an automatic. Wilson said, "Other drivers have asked me what it is like and I have told them the truth. I hope now that more drivers will get them so Norwich can have the cleanest, newest fleets of purpose-built taxis around."
