Can you advise me of the best make and model of 6 to 8 seater minibus that is economical to be used as a taxi and for airport runs?

Something like the Toyota Proace Verso would make a good airport taxi. It can be specified with eight passenger seat and has affordable fuel costs. It's also backed by a five-year-warranty as standard: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/toyota/proace-ve.../

The Mercedes-Benz V-Class is more expensive and provides an upmarket image, but will be more expensive to fuel compared to the Toyota: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/mercedes-benz/v-.../

Do you know of any companies that make electric minibuses? The company I work for is looking to "go green" and I can't seem to find much out there.
