The UniCab is an all-electric concept vehicleincludes advanced capacitor energy distribution and sources power from solar panels on the roof, brake energy conversion, hydrogen fuel cells and speedy plug-in charge.

The UniCab doesn’t look similar to a conventional taxi, but features seating for six passengers, an automated ramp for those with disabilities, an infotainment center which displays the route and attractions along with way.
