Nissan’s NV200 has been chosen as the exclusive taxi for New York City from the end of 2013.
Nissan NV200 taxi will be a modified version of the compact commercial vehicle currently available in global markets including the UK.
NYC has the largest taxi fleet of any US city.
As part of the program, Nissan also will work with the NYC and taxi owners on a pilot programme to study the use of zero-emission, electric vehicles as taxis. Nissan will provide up to six electric Nissan Leafs to taxi owners for testing in 2012 as well as the charging stations to support their use.
