Hi All

I am from The Taxi Shop. We are a main supplier into the industry and have our own coachworks for conversions such as wheelchair, hackney and royale.

The last 2 years have been hard for vehicle availability and prices have been steadily rising including the Trafic and Tourneo is now over £50k from dealer.

We have used stock available and in March 2023 new Trafics, April new Tourneos both with massive discounts. Let me know if you want to reserve one.

How long do you think the vehicle manufacturers will be supplying diesel motors than can be converted to taxis?

I've spoken to a few dealers and they are very pessimistic.

Especially for the smaller WAVs.

Although I don’t think this is the exact solution , it’s certainly something like this with a modular setup that can be configured to meet different demands that might just work, WAV taxis are such a niche market it’s not worth the big boys getting involved.

To be fair. The ones we convert dont rely on being supplied to us for that reason.
We are a dealer for certain brands and R&D our own conversions.
All we rely on is general availability.

Hope that answer satisfies what you meant.

FYI I have new 9 Seat Tourneos for reservations now :)
