More than 200 of One80’s Mercedes Vito Taxis will be fitted with E‑Leather upholstered seats and interiors each year. Each taxi features six square metres of black E‑Leather upholstery, chosen to maintain the classic styling of the Mercedes vehicle.
A key requirement for One80 was to use an application which is durable, as taxis may travel up to 100km in one year, but must still look like a new car.
Roy McMaster, sales and marketing director at One80, said: “E‑Leather looks great when it is upholstered in our taxis. It looks and feels as good as traditional leather with a nice finish and above all it is very durable and stays fresh, which is essential when transporting so many passengers.”
