When you're looking for a taxi New York, you're probably searching for a yellow large sedan that isn't all that stylish, right? Well, things are changing in New York City with the introduction of the Nissan NV200 Taxi, also known as the "Taxi of Tomorrow." On the eve of the 2012 NY International Auto Show, the Japanese brand debuted this fuel-efficient taxi, and it's still available for public viewing at the show's Jacob Javits Center from now until April 15th.
Nissan President and CEO Carlos Ghosn explains the new endeavor, stating, "We're proud to introduce a new era of urban mobility to New York with the Nissan NV200 Taxi - New York City's Taxi of Tomorrow. The exclusive Taxi of Tomorrow draws on Nissan's global experience in commercial vehicles, as well as insight from New York City taxi drivers and passengers, who helped identify important improvements over today's cabs. The Nissan taxi will deliver unprecedented levels of innovation and comfort to New York's 600,000 daily taxi riders."1 After a lengthy bid selection process by the NY City Taxi and Limousine Commission, the NV200 Taxi was selected in May 2011 as the exclusive taxi of NYC beginning in late 2013.
