A while ago a GLA 200 was spotted with a little taxi sign on its roof doing some test driving. We now have a better idea of exactly what that was.
It is a GLA 200 taxi that will run on the 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine from the Mercedes-Benz B 200 Natural Gas Dive Taxi that was launched the other day at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. With a 1595 cc displacement and 156 horses, the engine's most impressive feature is its low CO2 emissions while running on natural gas. This natural gas costs about half as much as gasoline too!
So if you are in Germany next year, you may see one of these natural gas taxis drinvin' round.
