Nissan unveils new green ‘black cab’

Nissan has revealed the new five-seater Nissan NV200 London Taxi, a car the manufacturer says is a ‘bold new vision’ for more environmentally-friendly public transport

Nissan says the NV200 offers significantly reduced CO2 outputs compared to current taxi models, bringing it more in line with the Mayor’s Air Quality initiative for London. The car manufacturer also claims that the NV200 50 per cent more fuel efficient than current cab models.

General Secretary of the Licensed Taxi Drivers' Association, Steve McNamara, said: "Nissan already has a great footing in the London taxi market - the 2.7-litre diesel that featured in some of the early taxis was one of the greatest engines ever put in a cab.

“From what I've seen of the NV200 London Taxi, it ticks all the right boxes. It's important that it looks like a cab, is comfortable with good ingress and egress and is reliable. If the fuel consumption figures are as promised, it will be a big seller."

Subject to final testing, the diesel-powered Nissan NV200 aims to receive full London Taxi certification later this year. An all-electric e-NV200 concept is also set to undergo trials in the Capital.
