I can’t imagine what a NYC Taxi Contest would look like, but I bet it was interesting. Regardless, the Mayor of New York City has dubbed the Nissan NV200 as the official NYC Taxi beginning in 2013.
In a released statement from the Mayor’s office, the NV200 was described as the safest taxi ever used in the City due to the multiple airbags and crash testing. Other aspects of the vehicle that made it preferable are its fuel efficiency, passenger/cargo room, transparent roof, mobile device charging units and built-in GPS navigation.
On display at the Detroit Auto Show this week is the Nissan e-NV200 Concept which is exactly the same in body, but more like the Nissan Leaf in power. The e-NV200 will be powered by a 80 kW electric motor and 90kW lithium-ion pack, same as the Leaf.
The NV200 is not available in the US yet, but will be soon. Contact Magic Nissan in Everett about this vehicle or any other Nissan. You’ll find friendly service and amazing Nissan cars.
