Inside the Nissan NV200 which won the tender for the Taxi of Tomorrow
Four years ago, New York City officials convened a group of taxi drivers, owners and passengers, to create a set of goals for the next New York City taxi cab, a project called the Taxi of Tomorrow, an attempt to re imagine the entire taxi system. The results are in. Today the Nissan NV200 taxi which won the job until 2023 will be shown to the public at the "Taxi of Tomorrow" Design Expo. To me, it looks a lot more like a Taxi-designed-by-Committee than a Taxi-of-Tomorrow - a gas-engine and a basic van design. Where did it all go wrong?
