Nissan Unveils New Design For London’s Iconic Black Cabs
Cities

London taxis are revamped to become more eco-friendly and to include useful amenities such as electric charging outlets.

Nissan has unveiled a bold new vision for the future of the London ‘black cab’ and its 300,000 daily users – the Nissan NV200 London Taxi. This innovative new vehicle has been designed to take full advantage of its clever packaging and occupant-friendly exterior features. Thanks to its generously sized rear passenger cell, the NV200 London Taxi is big enough to seat five passengers in comfort, yet compact enough to navigate and thrive in the Capital’s famously tricky streets.

The flexible nature of the NV200’s platform makes it the perfect machine on which to base a 21st Century London Taxi. LED daytime running lights give them greater visibility in urban traffic and the twin sliding doors are wide, easy to use and can be opened without threatening the safety of passing traffic. Inside the taxi, passengers can enjoy amenities such as electrical outlets for charging devices, a panoramic roof for sightseeing, and seats made from antibacterial materials.

The new Nissan NV200 London Taxi doesn’t just raise the standards for passengers, it also makes business sense for owners and promises to have a significant impact on the CO2 emissions of London’s taxi fleet. Taxi versions of the NV200 have already been unveiled in Tokyo and it has also been chosen as the exclusive New York City ‘Taxi of tomorrow.’ The NV200 London Taxi joins an exciting global Nissan vision for the private hire industry. Check out the video below for an introduction of the new taxi fleet.
