Nissan Taxi of Tomorrow Making its World Debut

After a two-year competitive bid selection process, the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) selected the Nissan NV200 Taxi in May 2011 as the exclusive taxi of New York City beginning in late 2013, says Nissan.

The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, the Design Trust for Public Space and Smart Design also have engaged with Nissan and the TLC in the vehicle’s design.

The company says each day, 600,000 New Yorkers hop in the back of a taxi – the yellow cab that is a symbol of New York City around the world. Now, the first full vehicle prototype of the Taxi of Tomorrow can be seen by drivers, passengers and owners.

The 2014 Nissan NV200 Taxi, New York’s Taxi of Tomorrow, planned to make its global debut on Tuesday at a special event in SoHo with Nissan president and CEO Carlos Ghosn and New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

Following the event, the Taxi of Tomorrow is headed to the 2012 New York International Auto Show, where it will be on display for New Yorkers and visitors from around the world. The auto show at the Jacob Javits Center is open to the public April 6-15.
