Toyota introduces LPG hybrid taxi for Japan

Toyota has unveiled the production version of the JPN Taxi concept for the Tokyo Motor Show, using a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and electric drivetrain to achieve 19.4 km/l (45.6 mpg, 5.51 l/100km). Safety equipment is also a big part of this new taxi model. It will enter Japanese dealerships immediately.

The JPN Taxi sports some features for rider comfort and driver ergonomics as well. A low, flat floor makes it easy for customers to enter and exit the taxi, and the wide-opening rear power sliding door on the left side aids that further and also accommodates an optional wheelchair ramp.
