Nissan Unveils NV200 London Taxi [VIDEOS]

Nissan has unveiled the NV200 London Taxi, that is based on the company’s multi-purpose NV200 compact van. Taxi versions of the NV200 have already been unveiled in Tokyo and it has also been chosen as the exclusive New York’s taxi of the future.

Nissan NV200 London Taxi is not just a repainted version of the stock car. Taxi’s in London must meet a host of Transport for London legal requirements, like headroom and 25ft turning circle that required changes to the suspension and front track.

The NV200 London Taxi seats five adults – three on a rear bench and two on rear-facing, fold-down seats.

The NV200 London Taxi is powered by a 88bhp 1.5 litre diesel engine also found in the Juke, promising 53.3mpg economy and 139g/km emissions.

Nissan points out that if all London cabbies switched to an NV200 taxi, it would save 37,970 metric tonnes of CO2 a year, while individual drivers would save around £663 per year on their fuel bills.

Nissan will also start testing the all-electric e-NV200 prototype London Taxi next year.
