Nissan NV200 Taxi @ the 2012 Beijing Motor Show

Nissan is also at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show to present the NV200 Taxi, which was premiered at the New York International Auto Show a few weeks ago. Just to put it into the right perspective, let us remind you that the Japanese carmaker has been selected to be the new NYC official taxi supplier starting next year, and therefore that plenty of these vehicles will be haunting the Big Apple for the following 10 years, so you better get used to it.

The NV200 comes with a low-emission 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine and has been designed to accommodate up to 4 passenger (not including the cab-driver) and their luggage. Among its most remarkable features there are the sliding doors, sunroof, a two-zone air-con (one for each row of seats), 6-way adjustable seats, USB and 12V recharging ports, integrated sat-nav, front and rear-seat occupant curtain airbags and the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system.

Each day, 600,000 New Yorkers hop in the back of the 13,000 taxis that are spread across the city, covering about 500 million miles every year. Impressive figures, no wonder they wanted to upgrade the whole thing, and this is the vehicle actually in charge of making New York ‘greener’ and more sustainable: “The Nissan NV 200 will be the safest, most comfortable and most convenient taxi the City has ever had - said New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg - New York City cabs have always been iconic, and now they will set a new standard. The 600,000 passengers who use taxis to get around every day deserve the cutting-edge technology and top-of-the-line safety features that this model delivers.” Check out the specs of this model right after the jump.
