NV200 STEP INTO THE TAXI OF TOMORROW

600,000 PASSENGERS
A DAY. THE SOLUTION?
NISSAN’S NV200 .

New York's iconic yellow cab is getting a decidedly futuristic update. In 2013, the spacious, state-of-the-art Nissan NV200 will begin ferrying 600,000 passengers daily around the city that never sleeps. With a low-annoyance horn, opening side windows, and sliding doors with a retractable side step for easy entry, it’s set to change not only the face of the taxi, but of the Big Apple itself.

NV200 Becomes NYC’s Official Taxi

NV200 Becomes NYC’s Official Taxi

Following a two-year competition, Nissan was selected as the exclusive provider of NYC taxis. Chosen for its unique combination of compact exterior and spacious interior, the NV200 taxi was designed with the input of hundreds of taxi owners and drivers, as well as thousands of passengers.

When the Taxis of Tomorrow make their debut on the streets of New York City, they’ll feature new, easy to recognize side graphics, and symbols that indicate whether the cab is vacant or occupied. The iconic cabs will also be sporting a fresher, brighter shade of yellow.

Interior

COMFORT FOR HIRE

Room for Four Happy Passengers
Beyond shuttling happier passengers, the new taxis will make the job of NYC taxi drivers much easier. They’ll be seated in a comfortable, six-way adjustable driver’s seat that moves even when the partition is installed. They’ll have access to modern features, like a built-in Navigation System and intercom system. And the interior—finished with anti-microbial, environmentally friendly materials—will be easy to clean and help reduce airborne odors.

EFFICIENCY

FREEING UP SPACE IN NYC

2L Front-wheel Drive Engine
A NYC taxi travels roughly 70,000 miles a year, using a lot of fuel along the way. To reduce both fuel consumption and pollution, the NV200 is equipped with a powerful, efficient 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine. The NV200 also sits on a shorter wheelbase than a traditional sedan-based taxi, which reduces the overall length of the vehicle. That’s right—the new taxi is actually bigger on the inside and smaller on the outside. This innovative design means that the shorter taxis will, cumulatively, open up about five acres of space on New York City’s notoriously congested streets, reducing gridlock and pollution in the process.

SAFETY

SAFETY IN THE CITY

Secure Transportation
The dual-sliding doors help to eliminate collisions with pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists. When the doors are opened, a warning light comes on to alert other drivers. Each taxi is also equipped with front- and rear-seat curtain airbags, as well as seat-mounted airbags for the front row passengers.
