2014 Nissan NV200 Taxi

Nissan shared more details of its NV 200 "Taxi of Tomorrow" appropriately enough, just ahead of the New York Auto Show. The NV 200 will be the official taxi of the city starting late 2013. It features innovative technological advancements, including USB and 12-volt chargers for rear passengers, built-in navigation for the driver, an intercom system between the driver and passengers, anti-microbial upholstery and an odor-fighting headliner.

The NV sits on a 115-inch wheelbase with a 186-inch overall length, making it nearly three feet shorter overall than its immediate predecessor, the long-wheelbase Ford Crown Victoria. Power for the NV comes from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, although official output wasn't announced. Nissan is also working with the city testing an experimental fleet of electric vehicles for possible future electrification of the taxi fleet, and with specialized upfitter Braun for developing a wheelchair-accessible version to also be offered to taxi fleets in late 2013, when the NV will go on sale. The announced starting price for the specially-equipped NV is $29,700.
