Roomy With a View
“We’re proud to introduce a new era of urban mobility to New York…”
With those simple words, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn joined New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg for the official world debut of the innovative Nissan NV200 “Taxi of Tomorrow” at a special ceremony just prior to the opening of the 2012 New York International Auto Show.
After years of planning, a two-year highly competitive bid selection process, and countless hours of engineering and development, the NV200 Taxi prototype was ready to meet its future drivers and riders. It is now on display at the Nissan booth during the 10-day long auto show at Manhattan’s Jacob Javits Center, April 6 to 15.
For those not able to attend the show, Nissan’s Mike Hobson, director of Light Commercial Vehicles and Fleet, invited the media center to film an up-close walk-around of the vehicle and its unprecedented levels of comfort and innovation.
