All-electric Futuristic Taxi for Off Road Terrain


Eco-friendly vehicles aren't something new today, but Taxius Animalus is a completely different story. This concept car represents an all-electric taxi that has six wheels and was designed to be able to pass through off road terrain. The design is credited to Francis Gomes from Turin, Italy.

The vehicle might be far from being produced for the masses, but its design is definitely worth highlighting. It is worth mentioning that the taxis used today emit a lot of gases everyday and a large portion of those gasses are wasted when taxis wait for passengers or are stuck in traffic jams. Taxius Animalus is not just eco-friendly, it is also capable of transporting people to areas where normal taxis would never pass using its six wheel track resembling that of a tank, informs Tuvie. You can find more information about cars here at www.InfoNIAC.com - please check the links at the bottom of the story.

The vehicle is made using tough fabric and welded hollow tubes. It features transparent exterior skin (which allows seeing the whole surrounding scenery) and composite panels. Still there is no information regarding the type of battery that the taxi uses and its location, the way the vehicle charges and the time required for a full charge.
