Importance of winter tyres -Stay safe in winter time !

Winter tyres: what they are ?  

Why you should be using them during the winter months? 

There is a huge lack of awareness in the UK about winter tyres. Motorists are not aware they exist or they think that the tyre can only be used during times of heavy snow or ice.

Drivers will benefit from using winter tyres on ice, slush, frost and  wet roads. Performance of winter tyres are any time the temperature dips below +7 degrees centigrade.

winter-tyre-braking-distancesWhy  winter tyres?

Unlike summer tyres (everyday standard tyres in the UK), winter tyres do not harden at lower temperatures. That means they give you a much better grip on the road and the ability to stop in a shorter distance, increasing your safety on the road.

What's the difference between a summer and a winter tyre?

The rubber compound of a winter tyre is very different to a summer tyre. It is designed specifically to work in temperatures under +7 degrees centigrade.

What happens to a summer tyre when the temperature drops is that the tyre compound loses its flexibility, making it less grippy in low temperatures.

Winter tyres are made from specially developed compound with more natural rubber so they don't harden when it's cold, which means increased grip on the road and greater safety.

On ice and snow winter tyres provide grip that no summer tyre can match. A vehicle fitted with winter tyres will come to standstill on a snow-covered road (from a speed of just 30mph) after 35 metres – with normal tyres the braking distance required is a further 8 metres (43 metres). That is another two car lengths.


Safety during the winter months:

Drivers are six times more likely to have an accident during the winter months, with the numbers rising further when snow and ice add an extra hazard.

During the big freeze at the start of 2010, more than 3 million motorists had an accident and 45 per cent had two or more near misses according to a survey by Continental Tyres.

Nearly half of all accident claims are made during the winter months.

Motorists are unprepared for the wintry conditions when driving, and many are unaware that they can improve safety by switching to winter tyres.

Winter tyres are a legal requirement in other EU countries such as Austria, Germany and Finlandand many offer specific winter recommendations. There is however, no legislation or guidance in this country and most people aren't even aware of winter tyres. There isn't anything in the Highway Code on the subject.

When should I fit winter tyres to my car?

It is recommended that you switch to winter tyres in the UK between October and April.

If you are reluctant to change tyres and have nowhere to store summer tyres when they are not in use, you are better off using winter tyres all year round.

Winter tyres are as quiet and comfortable as summer tyres and, thanks to sophisticated compound technology, do not wear any more quickly.

There is a slight trade off with stopping distances as a winter tyre does not stop as quickly in the dry as a summer tyre, however, on balance if it is not possible to switch tyres in the winter, experts say you are better off with winter tyres all year round. This is because the difference in stopping distances of summer tyres in winter is far greater than for winter tyres in the summer.

Winter safety tips:

  • Check your tyres: The legal limit for tread depth on tyres is 1.6mm, but safety experts at Continental Tyres recommend a minimum of 3mm for wet weather safety. Ensuring tyres are correctly inflated will also improve your cars handling as well as saving you money.
  • Check your lights are clean and working
  • Visibility is vital. Keep your windscreen and windows clear
  • Reduce your speed on slippery surfaces and avoid harsh braking or acceleration
  • At low speeds use second rather than first gear to avoid spinning the wheels
  • To slow the car change down and use engine braking but if you need to use the brakes apply them gently
  • Allow up to ten times the normal braking distance, especially on motorways
  • Increase the distance between you and the vehicle in front – in rain, ice and snow leave enough space to stop safely
  • Put together an emergency kit, such as food, drink, torch and extra clothing, for journeys in severe winter weather, and keep it in the back of your car
  • Plan ahead and allow enough time to get to your destination.

New design for BLACK CAB 2015

Airport Taxi from Hull Price List - 4 seater - 6 seater and 8 seater

metrocab 2014 evThe Metrocab EV is designed, engineered and assembled in Mytchett, Surrey. A trial fleet is set to hit London streets very soon, beating the battery-powered version of Nissan’s taxi by around 12 months. There’s no word on range yet, but it’ll be powered by a lithium-ion battery pack and driven by two electric motors on the rear axle.

The changes include replacing the NV200’s angular headlamps with round lights similar to those used on the Juke. There’s also a new grille and redesigned front bumper, while the rooftop taxi sign is now lit with LEDs to make it more obvious at night.

Nissan Executive Vice President Andy Palmer said that the design is supposed to epitomise everything that a black cab should be - it was designed in London, for London. He also said that it's a design that's instantly recognisable as a cab, and that the face is going to prove popular across London whether you're a cabbie or customer. 

Nissan plans to build140,000 NV200 Taxis per year worldwide. That's the same number as black cabs have been sold in total since 1948 in the UK.

nissan nv200 taxi profileAn electric Nissan cab will be available in later 2015, to be launched in an as-yet unconfirmed UK city. This model is distinguished by blue Nissan badges and a different, more geometric grille that hides the charging point, as you can see in the gallery pictures above.

As with all London cabs, the Nissan meets the requirement for a 7.6-metre turning circle. However, it achieves this with clever front suspension geometry, rather than requiring electric rear-wheel steering at low speeds in the way the Mercedes Vito taxi does.

The NV200 is built in Barcelona, and then imported to the UK to be converted into this taxi. Currently Nissan is evaluating which UK business will get the contract for this. 

Power comes from a 1.6-litre petrol engine, linked to a CVT gearbox. Nissan claims economy of around 38mpg and CO2 emissions of 179g/km – considerably better than the stated 32mpg and 233g/km of the current 2.5-litre diesel TX4 London taxi. Emissions of NOx and other harmful particulates are also much improved. A spokesman added that an all-electric version of the taxi is still on track to go on sale within two years.


While a standard London cab currently starts from £32,995, the Nissan is expected to cost less than £30,000 when it goes on sale from a purpose-built Canary Wharf showroom in December. The cab is part of Nissan’s global taxi programme, which includes New York, Barcelona and Tokyo.

Darryl Scriven, Nissan's design excellence manager, took us around the new cab. He told us that the lights are actually from the Juke, and that the front axle has been widened by 75mm each side over the van version. The front bumper is in three pieces so can easily be replaced, while the front wings are new too. Side running boards also feature on the new taxi.

Most taxis are hailed from the front, so that's where the changes have happened. However it does come with a chrome strip at the back and the silver taxi logo to make sure it isn't too van-like.

The sliding doors at the side are bigger than the standard for better wheelchair access, and a ramp is stored in the boot. The main luggage space is next to the driver.

We first reported on Nissan’s taxi for London in August 2012. The spacious interior impressed us with its panoramic roof for sight-seeing, while the new front suspension hit the mark, ensuring the cab could tackle the tight roundabout at London’s Savoy Hotel. However, we did say it lacked the looks of the iconic black cab – but not any more!

You can find out all about the new car by watching our Nissan NV200 Taxi video review.

Nissan isn’t the only company trying to muscle in on the London cab market. Metrocab is looking to be the first to put an all-electric model on sale in the UK.

The Metrocab EV is designed, engineered and assembled in Mytchett, Surrey. A trial fleet is set to hit London streets very soon, beating the battery-powered version of Nissan’s taxi by around 12 months. There’s no word on range yet, but it’ll be powered by a lithium-ion battery pack and driven by two electric motors on the rear axle.
