In related news, Honda plans to sell the insight, a hybrid very similar, but smaller and cheaper than the Prius, by this spring. I'll keep tabs on weather the model will be approved as a yellow cab by the T&LC. The Toyota Prius, which is just gaining unstoppable momentum with a broad spectrum of buyers including more than a handful of taxi drivers, will also be re-designed by this spring. The new Insight won't break any records with Miles to the gallon ratings, but the new Prius will get 50 highway, and 49 city. And also this spring, Ford will sell a hybrid version of the Fusion. It will better the Toyota Camry in Mile to the gallon ratings. Being that Ford has been badge of choice by almost every cab company and driver alike, it is sure to be a hit.
UPDATE: I wouldn't be surprised if there are now a few more Honda Civic hybrid taxis.
