This is Nissan's new redesigned Taxi For London based on the multi-purpose NV200 platform

The NV200 cab for London was recently re-designed is response to feedback from the London Mayor’s office, Transport for London and other key organisations which have put their backing behind the new taxi.

The new Nissan NV cab has been developed for London, in London, by Nissan Design Europe in Paddington, and will be launched in December 2014 with a 1.6-litre petrol engine linked to an automatic gearbox.

A zero emission electric version of the NV200 taxi will be launched in 2015.

The NV200 cab for London is part of Nissan’s global taxi programme, which also has its own version for other markets like New York, Barcelona and Tokyo. The London cab’s design is bespoke, inspired by rich heritage and status of London’s black cabs.

The front with round headlamps and a re-modelled grille mirrors the traditional black cab ‘face’, while LED lighting improves visibility of the traditional taxi sign.
