Eight Nissan dealerships in the New York City region now have the NV200T available for purchase. The development marks the next phase in Nissan’s commitment to deliver the most innovative, custom-designed taxi experience ever to the people who ride in New York City taxicabs every day.
Andy Palmer, executive vice president for Nissan Motor Company, said: ‘The Nissan NV200T demonstrates the company’s leadership in advancing global mobility through modern vehicle design and technology.
‘From its fuel-efficient powertrain, to its space-saving design and passenger-centric interior, the Nissan taxi is a prime example of innovative spirit that goes into all Nissan vehicles.
‘We are excited to see the NV200T now carrying passengers around Manhattan, and look forward to bringing the same NV200T experience to drivers and passengers in new markets outside New York.’
