Nissan has unveiled a bold new vision for the future of the London “black cab” and its 300,000 daily users—the Nissan NV200 London Taxi.

The NV200 London Taxi will offer significantly reduced CO2 outputs compared to current taxi models—a focus in line with Mayor Boris Johnson’s Air Quality strategy for London.

An all-electric e-NV200 concept is also set to undergo trials in the capital.

The mayor has joined disability groups and the influential London Taxi Drivers’ Association in welcoming the launch of the Nissan NV200 London Taxi.

Taxi versions of the NV200 have already been unveiled in Tokyo and it has also been chosen as the exclusive New York City Taxi of Tomorrow.

The NV200 London Taxi joins an exciting global Nissan vision for the private hire industry.

The Nissan NV200 London Taxi comfortably seats five adults—three on a rear bench with two on rear-facing, fold-down seats. The front passenger seat has been removed to create space for luggage.

A standout feature is the taxi’s sliding passenger doors, which were developed for easy open and close. They are also much safer for pedestrians, cyclists and other vehicles because they do not swing out to create a potential obstruction.
