Over the last 12 months, the new NV200 London Taxi has been undergoing an intensive development process by Nissan engineers. At the same time, Nissan's design center in Paddington has been applying the finishing touches to an iconic new exterior for the cab, penned especially for the Capital.
A new era in public transportation has begun with the Nissan NV200 taxi now in service on the streets of New York City. The meter on the first NV200 taxi fare officially kicked-off at JFK International Airport on October 23, dropping its inaugural passenger near 13th Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan. Mr. Ranjit Singh, an owner/operator of Medallion No. 7F20, took delivery of his NV200 taxi from Koeppel Nissan in Queens on October 18.
Following a banner 2013 model year that saw the introduction of all-new generations of the Nissan Altima, Nissan Sentra and Nissan Pathfinder, the parade of innovative all-new designs continues for 2014.
Making its New York debut today was the wheelchair accessible version of the Nissan NV200 Taxi, which will become available as part of Nissan’s NV200 “Taxi of Tomorrow” program that rolls out this coming fall.
After nearly doubling sales of Pathfinder since the October 2012 introduction of an all-new fourth-generation design, Nissan's iconic SUV took another major step forward today with the world debut of the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid at a press conference at the New York International Auto Show.
Two years ago Nissan won a bid to redesign and supply New York City's Taxi of Tomorrow. Since then the company has been focused on perfecting the vehicle for passengers, drivers, medallion holders and fleets.
