Nissan NV200 NYC

The Japanese automaker Nissan proudly announced at the beginning of this week that it is going to be the exclusive supplier of New York’s taxi fleet. The city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission said that the Nissan NV200 will be a part of the fleet in late 2013. Also in consideration for this position were Ford and a Turkish vehicle manufacturer by the name of Karsan, but after a two years trial period, Nissan managed to pull ahead and win the competition.

The company’s NV200 Taxi features a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter engine that has a bunch of fuel saving technologies, along with various CO2 emissions reduction systems. Nissan said that this NV200 can offer more passenger and cargo space than any other current taxi. The taxi sports a “low-annoyance” horn, independently controlled rear air conditioning system that has several filters for cleaning the air, along with sliding doors and an environmentally friendly seat fabric.
