A national boiler manufacturer has found the perfect solution for a comfortable commute, after announcing that the world’s COSIEST taxi is on its way to Manchester this week.
Despite an unassuming exterior, the ‘Baxi Taxi’, created by heating and boiler specialist, Baxi, features a very surprising interior. Designed to mimic the warmth of a cosy country lodge, the inside of the black cab is decked out from top to bottom with crushed velvet, faux fur throws and even a fluffy sheepskin rug to help keep locals warm and comfortable on their trip.
The one of a kind ‘cosy cab’ even has a stag’s head taking pride of place to create an authentic country lodge effect. Passengers lucky enough to travel in the taxi will be offered sheepskin slippers and blankets to keep them warm throughout their travels.
To celebrate the arrival of the Baxi Taxi in Manchester, the boiler brand will be offering free lifts to locals on Monday 25 February. To book a free ride, residents simply need to Tweet @Baxi_Taxi with their postcode and preferred pick up time.
Baxi Marketing Manager, Sian Lewis said: “Even though the weather is starting to improve, we’re still seeing some chilly mornings this February. That’s why we wanted to create the Baxi Taxi – a warm and cosy haven for people in Manchester to snuggle up as they make their way to their destination.
“Getting a cab rather than walking or taking public transport can often feel like an unnecessary luxury. But because ours won’t cost a penny, it means locals can ride in absolute comfort, totally guilt-free.
“We’ve used our boiler and heating know-how to make a small space feel as warm and inviting as possible – with fantastic results.”
Free lifts will be available in Manchester city centre between 10am and 2pm on Monday 25 February. Bookings will be offered on a first-come-first-serve basis, so commuters looking to grab a free ride will need to be quick to get involved. Terms and conditions apply.
