Nissan Unveils Customized Chicago NV200 Taxi Cab

Nissan Unveils Customized Chicago NV200 Taxi Cab


CHICAGO - Following its introduction in New York City as the city's newest taxi, Nissan unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show a customized Chicago taxi featuring more content tailored to the unique needs of metropolitan cab service than ever before.
Chicago has about 7,000 cabs in service, and Nissan wants those who know them best - taxi riders and drivers - to engage in dialogue about what features make for a better taxi experience. The public can share their thoughts through social media such as Twitter or Facebook using #HailYes.
The Nissan NV200 taxi's green and white design expresses a modern take on a historically popular Chicago taxi color. The Chicago NV200 taxi offers USB charging, anti-fatigue driver's seats, panoramic sky views of the city, reduced odors, improved leg room, more cargo space, passenger safety and other conveniences that no other taxi offers.
The Nissan NV200 is the only taxi on the market to have been crash-tested with the partition installed. Because the partition and equipment are designed to custom-fit the vehicle, passenger safety is improved by rounded edges and fully functioning airbags — features that many taxis do not have.
"With great feedback from drivers, riders and media in New York, we've had a number of dealers across the country raise their hands to get a supply of NV200 taxis for cities such as Seattle, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City and across Texas. We think Chicago is a natural fit for the premium taxi experience NV200 delivers at a competitive price," said Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales & Marketing, Parts & Service, U.S.A.
"Nissan's #HailYes campaign will engage Chicagoans in conversation about what's needed for a better taxi experience in the city," said Diaz. "The solution for an improved taxi isn't a pipe dream; it's already here. We'd love to see those visiting or watching coverage of the Chicago Auto Show voice their support with a 
#HailYes shout-out in social media for the NV200 taxi."
Drawing on insight from taxi drivers, fleet owners and passengers, the Nissan NV200 taxi aims to provide the comfort and convenience of black-car service in an everyday taxi you can hail on the street. One of the Nissan NV200 taxi's popular design elements is the transparent roof that gives riders stunning views of Chicago city sights and skyscrapers.
Other features include:
  • Ample room for four passengers and their luggage, offering substantial improvements over current and recently unveiled taxi models
  • Sliding doors with entry step and grab handles, providing easy entry and exit
  • Opening side windows
  • Independently controlled, rear air conditioning
  • Active carbon-lined headliner to help neutralize interior odors
  • Overhead reading lights for passengers and floor lighting to help locate belongings
  • Mobile charging ports for passengers, including a 12-volt electrical outlet and two USB ports
  • Breathable, germ-fighting, durable and easy-to-clean seat fabric, simulating the look and feel of leather
  • Flat "no hump" passenger floor area for more comfortable ride
  • Roof-mounted curtain supplemental air bags for side-impact and rollover protection for all outboard occupants - the NV200 taxi is the first taxi to be crash-tested with taxi equipment installed, including the partition

Other notable NV200 taxi features focus on driver comfort, customer satisfaction and the environment:

  • A low-annoyance horn with exterior lights that indicate when the vehicle is honking, so the horn is used less frequently
  • Hearing Loop System for the hearing impaired
  • Driver and passenger intercom system
  • Proven 2.0L 4-cylinder powertrain, engineered to enhance the emission performance and fuel efficiency of the taxi fleet
  • 150,000-mile powertrain limited warranty
  • A 6-way adjustable driver's seat featuring both recline and lumbar adjustments, even with a partition installed
  • Unique driver's seat material and stitching to promote improved airflow
  • USB auxiliary audio input and charge port for driver
  • Standard navigation system with integrated "RearView Monitor"
  • Taxi wiring and installation provisions

Nissan Unveils the New London Taxi Cab

Nissan Unveils the New London Taxi Cab

  • Designed in London, for London, at Nissan's European design center in Paddington
  • Production version will launch in December 2014
  • Zero emission electric taxi to launch in 2015
LONDON, UK - Nissan has today unveiled the new face of its Taxi for London, re-designed to make it instantly recognizable as one of the capital's iconic black cabs.
Based on the company's successful multi-purpose NV200 platform, the vehicle was first unveiled as a bold and exciting new vision for the famous London Hackney Carriage in August 2012. In response to feedback from the London Mayor's office, Transport for London and other key organizations which have put their backing behind the new taxi, Nissan has redesigned the vehicle to better reflect the iconic nature of the traditional black cab.
Nissan's newly redesigned taxi has been developed for London, in London, by Nissan Design Europe (NDE) in Paddington, the same design center responsible for the Qashqai and Juke. The new taxi will be launched in December 2014 with a modern, clean, 1.6-litre petrol engine equipped with an automatic gearbox. Furthermore, Nissan will launch a zero emission electric version of the NV200 taxi in 2015.
Nissan already has a rich pedigree in the London taxi market - its 2.7-liter TD27 diesel engine was fitted to the FX4 "Fairway" and TX1 black cabs during the 1980s and '90s and gained a reputation for reliability and durability. In developing the NV200 Taxi for London, Nissan has ensured that it adheres to the strict TfL regulations governing Hackney Carriages, including the required 25-foot (7.6-meter) turning circle.
The NV200 cab for London is part of Nissan's global taxi program, which also encompasses New York, Barcelona and Tokyo. The London version's design is bespoke, reflecting the rich heritage and status of London's black cabs.
Among the specific changes that have been made to the front of the NV200 taxi are:
  • Round headlamps and a re-modeled grille mirroring the traditional black cab "face"
  • LED lighting to improve visibility of the traditional taxi sign
  • Completely new front bumper panels
Design Excellence Manager at NDE, Darryl Scriven, said: "Having already overcome the unique technical challenges presented by the development of a new Hackney Carriage for London ahead of our launch of the vehicle in August 2012, we turned our attention to making the vehicle look the part. The Mayor's office and taxi drivers were very keen that we maintain the character of the Hackney Carriage, making it something that people in the city can be proud of.
"The main challenges were concerned with making sure customers can easily recognize it as a taxi. Being in London, we were able to go out and talk to cabbies about what was important to them as well as look at the vehicle from a customer's viewpoint. It's unusual for us to be able to work on something as bespoke as this, specifically for one location in the world and we are very proud to have been asked to do so."
Andy Palmer, Chief Planning Officer and Executive Vice President, Nissan Motor Corporation, said: "Since we launched our Taxi for London in August 2012, we have worked closely with the Mayor's office and associated stakeholders and interested parties to ensure that Nissan's new cab not only raises the bar for both driver and passenger, but is also as instantly recognizable as its legendary forebears.
"Alongside this, our engineers at Nissan Technical Centre Europe in Cranfield, Bedfordshire, have continued work on the cab, running real-world trials on the streets of London."
Nissan intends to put the NV200 Taxi for London on sale in the Capital in December 2014. From launch the new taxi will be available with a 1.6-liter gasoline engine equipped with an automatic gearbox. Compared to current diesel London taxis, this engine will be far cleaner, with lower levels of NOx and particulates.
Nissan franchised dealer group, Glyn Hopkin, has been appointed as the exclusive retailer to sell the Nissan NV200 Taxi for London from a purpose-built, ultra-modern showroom facility based in Canary Wharf.
Nissan is also forging ahead with its pioneering work in the sustainable motoring field, developing a 100 percent electric taxi – the e-NV200 – which it aims to have on the streets of London years ahead of the Mayor's target of 2020 for the development of a zero-emissions taxi. Nissan's electric taxi will be on the streets of a UK city in 2015.

The Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo Van

Big things really do come in small packages!

Imagine the power and durability of a commercial moving van combined with the compact size and maneuverability of a minivan. That's what drivers can expect from the new Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo Van. This Nissan NV200 is built from the ground up to give you the flexibility to keep up with the fast-paced business environment..

Is the Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo Van right for your business?

Just look at these stats!


This van measures 186.2 inches from end-to-end. It's 5.6 inches longer than the Ford Transit. It's long enough to haul some serious cargo and small enough to get in and out of loading zones, downtown business districts and busy commercial office spaces.


Of course the design team at Nissan knows that length is just one measure of a cargo van. That's why they made this NV200 wide enough to carry a standard 40-by-48-inch commercial pallet in the cargo area.


This NV200 comes with dual sliding doors standard and the split rear doors open as wide as 180 degrees. That means easy access to your cargo from either side of the van, and the ability to unload from the rear of the van as well.

Cargo Capacity

The Nissan NV200 can carry about 1500 pounds. It also features optional floor-mounted hooks to secure your cargo. If you're not hauling pallets, the cargo area features a number of integrated mounting points for shelving units -or anything you can think of mounting!

Suspension & Horsepower

The Nissan NV200's rear suspension is leaf-sprung-like on a real commercial truck, and the NV200's 2.0 liter inline 4-cylinder engine puts out a respectable 140 horses. That's plenty of power to keep your business on the move!

Flexibility and other great features

Like all of Nissan's commercial vans, the Nissan NV200 can be configured with an amazing array of interior features. It can also be customized to be a rolling workshop or an office on wheels with a real desk!

The NV200 is rolling in to Mossy Nissan showrooms!

The Nissan NV200 is now available in San Diego at Mossy Nissan locations in El Cajon, Kearny Mesa and Oceanside. Mossy Nissan also offers great commercial vehicle financing! Don't wait!
