Has this been rolled out to production planes now?

Ive tried a search on the forums, and couldnt find anything, but that could me as im not sure im using them right.

I ask cause I took a couple of flights with MON recently, both of which on G-ZBAA.

On the second one I realised we were taxiing and there appeared to be no engine noise till just before take off?

If its not rolled out it was the quietest taxi ive ever had.

No, AFAIK Airbus has only performed trials of taxi systems, of which there are several proposals out there under development.

It looks like the Taxibot from IAI will be certified this year:

The WheelTug system has also gathered some customers an is expected this year.

A good overview of the systems currently in development:
