The London Electric Vehicle Company launched the #blackcabselfie competition at the official London Motor Show at the Battersea Park Evolution event on 5th – 8th May. The exhibition showcased 35 car brands and over 130 different models, some seen in the capital for the very first time.
At the family friendly show, the London Electric Vehicle Company took a prominent space to host a #blackcabselfie, where visitors could hop in the back of a black cab to take their official selfie in front of a London backdrop. They could then use the hashtag #blackcabselfie to share pics on Twitter and Instagram.
HRH Prince Michael of Kent (pictured), who opened the show on Thursday 4th May, joined in the fun by jumping in the front of the cab for a photo stating ‘I prefer to drive!’
In among the selfie excitement, there was an underlying, important message about the benefits of using a London Taxi. Visitors were reminded to think about black cabs as the safer, faster, smarter, greener and more accessible taxi choice in the capital.
As well as offering drivers knowledgeable about 25,000 streets in London, black cabs will soon accept card payments from October 2016 or can be booked via smartphone apps Hailo and GETT. From 2018 they will be greener with the latest environmentally friendly technology to enable zero emissions. They continue to be the most accessible taxi for all abilities.
It’s not too late to join in the selfies - post your #blackcabselfie on Twitter or Instagram today and don’t forget to share it with us at @TheLondonTaxiCoUK (Twitter).
