Reflecting on the New NYC Taxi

The iconic New York yellow taxi has been given a redesign with a increased focus on safety and the environment. The Nissan NV200 is a hybrid car and features a number of design innovations. To make traveller’s journey more comfortable, reading lights and independently-controlled rear air conditioning were added. For safety, the taxi will feature more airbags and lights that indicate when taxi doors are opening. A new campaign by Nissan promoting their new car confides: “Kept it yellow. Changed everything else.”
