PRLog - Sep. 21, 2012 - ELK GROVE, Calif. -- A taxi version of Nissan Motor Co.’s NV200 van officially became New York’s “Taxi of Tomorrow” when the city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission, or TLC, voted today to approve regulations that require taxi fleets to replace retiring cabs with the Nissan.

The car maker, which beat out rivals including Ford Motor Co. to build the city’s official cab, said the new model will 200 improve the overall fuel economy of the taxi fleet. The Nissan cabs go into service in October of next year. The NV200 is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder.

The exclusive agreement between Nissan and New York begins when the taxis hit the street in just over a year and lasts for 10 years.

“Nissan is appreciative of the opportunity to provide the City of New York with the next-generation of its iconic yellow taxi,” said Joe Castelli, Nissan’s vice president of commercial and fleet vehicles in North America. “The Nissan NV200 Taxi will deliver unprecedented innovation and vehicle features to the 13,000-strong taxi fleet.”
