At this year’s New York International Auto Show we introduced you to Nissan’s Taxi of Tomorrow Concept. Thanks to a vote made by the Taxi and Limousine Commission of New York City, this concept is becoming a reality. Starting in October of 2013, all retiring cabs must be replaced with Nissan’s NV200 Taxi.
Powered by a 2.0-liter engine, the Nissan should dramatically decrease fuel requirements and emissions for the 13,000-strong taxi fleet. Not only is fuel economy improved, but passenger comfort should be on the rise as well. The new taxi features acres of leg room, a huge panoramic glass panel in the roof, USB charging ports and much more. There are also unique touches like an Active Carbon Lined headliner which is designed to neutralize odors. That may sound silly to you, but after our time in NYC we think this is the most important upgrade.
Drivers and owners also get to benefit from the Taxi upgrades. Every Nissan NV200 Taxi has a 150,000 mile warranty, standard navigation with back-up camera, driver/passenger intercom system and they are all pre-wired for the taxi T-PEP system.
Sorry, Crown Vic, you were good for a while, but it looks like there is a new yellow king in town.
