An event run by German online taxi magazine Taxi Heute (Taxi Today) assessed 23 taxi models from nine manufacturers on the basis of economy, environment and image. In the alternative-power taxi category (hybrid, natural gas, CNG, LPG LPG, bio-ethanol) the top mark was awarded to the Mercedes-Benz E 200 NGT BlueEFFICIENCY with its bivalent (bi-fuel) natural gas drive. The taxi operates on about 5.5 kilograms of natural gas per 100 kilometers, while the CO2 emissions are only 149 g / km, according to manufacturer specifications. The 4-cylinder engine develops 120 kW (163 hp) and has a top speed of 224 km / h.
