2013 Opel Vivaro 2.0 CDTI 114 hp MPV Aut.
Aarhus city taxi, fleet number 212-0007, replacing http://platesmania.com/dk/nomer12448903 from new in 2013 and until june 2015.
Like the predecessor, this Opel was initially fully vinyl wrapped in the white and blue Dan Taxi company colors, but the wrapping tears easily, and by mid 2014 it was no longer intact. In the end it was removed completely, revealing the original silver paintwork. This photo shows the late, unwrapped version and was taken on june 9th 2015, just two days before retirement..
Now (early 2019) runs as a private vehicle on plates AV56376.
The license plate number range 98000 to 99999 is reserved for taxis and is almost always used. Taxis pay a lower tax than normal vehicles, but can't be resold for other purposes until they "earned" it, usually after 2-3 years. If a taxi has been "paid off" like this, it can sometimes be seen on normal plates outside the assigned range - the same goes for some minibuses used (partially) for taxi services.
The fleet numbers consist of 3 numbers, a dash, followed by 4 numbers. The first 3 numbers are the geographical code, with "212" designating greater Aarhus, while the last 4 are the taxi-license number. If a taxi-owner switches to work for a competing company, the taxi-license number is retained, and once the car is retired from service, the successor takes over the number. The numbers in greater Aarhus go from 0001 to appr. 0315, but not all of them are active. The exact number changes quite often, as licenses get issued and revoked, depending on current needs.
