The eco-friendly taxis of the future may draw inspiration from this Electric Taxi Car designed by Portuguese designer David Vidal. Inspired by the rickshaw—a popular transportation system in the East—the small electric cab service operates like Barcelona’s shared biking system, although it is unclear whether users will drive themselves or the Electric Taxi Car will have a driver.
The Electric Taxi Car provides crowded urban centres with a safe and sustainable way to commute, but the best part is that users can pay an annual fee to have anytime access to the cab service (kind of like having a metro pass!).
