Nissan has released some new details and images with the upcoming NV200 London Taxi, which will hit the production line in December, this year.
The Nissan NV200 London Taxi is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the help of a few images and details which have been released by the car manufacturer, which is still “testing the waters” ahead of the model’s scheduled production start, set for this December. According to the company, the Nissan NV200 London Taxi has been designed by the same team who worked on the Juke and on the Qashqai and it was created in London.
“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”, said Darryl Scriven, the Design Excellence Manager at NDE.
The new Nissan NV200 London Taxi has a different front grille which is showing some similarities to the classic black cab and it has been fitted with LED lightning and much more. Power will be provided by a 1.6 liter gasoline engine which will be mated to an automatic transmission. The average fuel consumption will stand at 40 mpg UK (7L / 100 km / 33 mpg US).
