Nissan NV200 ‘Taxi of Tomorrow’ Begins Production

The Nissan NV200 Taxi, also known as New York’s Taxi of Tomorrow, has begun production.

After a two-year competitive selection process, the Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) of New York City selected the Nissan NV200 as the exclusive taxi for the city. Two years later, Nissan has begun production in Cuernavaca, Mexico after modifying the production line in order to integrate the exclusive taxi characteristics of the model. The Paint Shop at the factory added the unique New York taxi yellow shade that also has an exclusive afterline to complete the taxi-specific manufacturing process.

The Taxi of Tomorrow will be powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine with a 150,000-mile powertrain warranty. It is the only taxi to ever be safety tested and certified with full taxi partition. Upgrades to the NV200 includes a transparent roof panel to present stunning views of New York City, opening side windows, a mobile charging station including a 12-volt outlet and a pair of USB ports, and a flat, no hump passenger floor area for a more comfortable ride.

    Not a good idea to have this type of taxi: Ususally after certain mileage, Taxi companies will sell the their old taxi cabs for new taxi cabs, but the problem with this highly specilized taxi is that the taxi cab will be very difficult to sell to the general consumers! If New York city fully embrasses this taxi car, then in a foreseeable future, New York street would be full of this type of rag-tag taxi !
