Not a bad way to monetize your Tesla, that’s for sure.
The German retrofitting company Intax is now offering taxi conversion kits for the Tesla Model X. Following the successful launch of their Model S retrofit kit, they followed up with a solution that allows any owner to turn his Model X into a taxi vehicle.
From the information available on the website, the package contains items covering all necessary German laws and requirements. Even though we mostly associate the Model X with Uber or Lyft services, there’s still a large volume of taxi services worldwide, offered through the legacy public transportation way.
According to the price list available on the website, the Taxi-Paket (what the company calls it) will cost you 2,790€ for a single vehicle, including the rather gnarly beige color, called Eifbein, a light ivory-color introduced in Germany in 1971. Even though the regulatory body deemed fit to remove the beige color necessity for new taxis, most German taxi drivers are keeping it to achieve a unified look and visibility so well-known to customers.
