Cabbies might want to start campaigning now against concept cars like the Meek taxi. The Meek taxi is a self-steering electric taxi designed for the year 2022. Meek was designed by Jacob Haim, Nils Kramer and Matthews Wagner.

The Meek taxi can seat four people and is powered by electricity gathered from solar panels and would have a max range of around 111 miles. The lack of a driver makes the cab incredibly roomy with all passengers getting substantial amounts of leg room and being able to talk to one another face-to-face thanks to the unique setup of the seats. The cab could be called and paid for using a smartphone app. The app would also allow people looking for a taxi the opportunity to split a cost with one already on its way providing the two parties are heading in similar directions.
