PRLog - Apr. 25, 2012 - DARIEN, Conn. -- Every day in New York City, 600,000 people use a taxi to reach their respective destinations. Whether they’re commuting to work or heading downtown to do some shopping or go sightseeing, the yellow taxicab has become a symbol of the perpetual hustle and bustle that is the Big Apple. And in the city that never sleeps, staying ahead of the curve of technological and cultural advances is a top priority, this spurring the Taxi of Tomorrow program.
As a popular CT Nissan dealer, Nissan Darien is proud to share that their big city neighbor to the south has chosen the upcoming 2014 Nissan NV200 as the premier Taxi of Tomorrow. “The exclusive Taxi of Tomorrow draws on Nissan's global experience in commercial vehicles, as well as insight from New York City taxi drivers and passengers, who helped identify important improvements over today's cabs…” said Nissan’s President and CEO Carlos Ghosn.
After a bidding war that lasted for two years, the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) chose the Nissan NV200 to be the city’s Taxi of Tomorrow back in May 2011. "The Nissan NV 200 unveiled today will be the safest, most comfortable and most convenient taxi the City has ever had," said NYC’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg. This announcement has got both NYC residents and CT Nissan tourists eager to check out the new taxi fleet once it hits the streets in 2013.

In order to provide the most beneficial and functional cab experience for both the passenger and driver alike, the 2014 NV200 has been designed from the inside out. Keeping passenger comfort and safety in mind, the 2014 NV200 comes with ample room for 4 passengers and their luggage, sliding doors with entry step and grab handles for easy entry and exit, a transparent roof panel to allow for a full view of the city en transit, an independently controlled rear air conditioner, a backseat mobile charge station, and much more.
In addition to focusing on passenger comfort, the 2014 NV200 has a number of features that the cab drivers will also appreciate. The 2014 NV200 will come with a proven 2.0L 4-cylinder fuel-efficient powertrain with a 150,000-mile warranty, a low-annoyance horn with exterior lights that indicate the horn is being honked, an adjustable seat with recline and lumbar support, standard navigation system with integrated rearview backup monitor, a driver and passenger intercom system, auxiliary audio input and charge port for the driver, and many more.
Aside from comfort and convenience, both passengers and drivers alike can rest assured that while they’re taking in the sights and sounds of New York City, they’ll be doing so in one of the safest cabs ever made. The 2012 NV200 comes with a number of safety benchmarks, including being the only taxi to ever be safety tested and certified with full taxi partition, front and rear-seat occupant curtain airbags and seat-mounted airbags for the front row, and standard traction control and Vehicle Dynamic Control. Additionally, the sliding doors accompanied by indicator lights that the vehicle’s doors are opening helps prevent the possibility of pedestrians, cyclists, and other motorists from colliding with the doors.
CT Nissan fans hoping to enjoy the comfort and convenience of the 2014 NV200 Taxi of Tomorrow during their next trip to NYC will have to wait until 2013 when the vehicles are scheduled for sale. In the meantime, CT Nissan fans can head over to Nissan Darien for more information about the upcoming 2014 NV200 and any other new or soon-to-arrive Nissan models.
