Tomorrow’s Taxis

New York City held a design contest for new taxi cabs and have winnowed the finalists down to three designs, none of which are very exciting, but could make the manufacturer of the eventual winner rather wealthy. However, the city reserves the right to reject all three and start the competition over. Enter Neatorama's own Steven M. Johnson, who quickly supplied several ideas of his own. The taxi pictured is designed to allow bikes to pass easily, without changing lanes! See more of Johnson's taxis in The New York Times. Link to article. Link to slide show.

Must be fully electric so each wheel has a motor. But then you normal 10 minute trip will take 2 hours because you will have to stop for a 2.9 hour charge to travel 5 miles.
