We know the 2014 Nissan NV200 is great for lugging art projects, the occasional motorcycle, or enough pizzas to feed a soccer league. But how long can it support human life before its occupant goes completely insane? (Spoiler: Not that long.)
I just landed at the Norfolk, Virginia airport with a long way to go and no way to get there. Thankfully, friends at Nissan came to my rescue with a 2014 NV200 van to shake down. A car and a place to live? These guys are alright.
Ever wonder how fast the new Nissan NYC Taxi does the quarter mile? Or gets to 60? Or its braking distance? Well, wonder no more, because our friends at MotorWeek just got their mitts on one of the newest taxis.
I genuinely like utility vehicles. I like their honesty, form-follows-functionitude, and I like it when they prove to be fun to drive despite everything. It's like when you learn a really serious theologian does a party trick lighting farts. The NV200 isn't quite that fun, but I enjoyed my time with this little useful…
There has been a lot of hoopla surrounding Nissan's New York city taxi of the future, the cliche-ly named Taxi of Tomorrow. But proverbial road blocks be damned, because the Taxi of Tomorrow is now on NYC streets. The future is here.
A Manhattan Supreme Court judge has ruled that New York's Taxi and Limousine Commission overstepped their authority when they mandated that all NYC cabs be Nissan's NV200-based New York Taxi. After October 28, all non-hybrid cabs in New York will become illegal, so those New Yorkers better figure something out, pronto.
Following up on what we reported two weeks ago, Nissan announced that the production of New York's future taxis is well underway at the company's assembly plant in Mexico. So yes, after years of Crown Vics, a Japanese car will be the main vehicle in the fleet. Will this be the best NYC taxi ever? Doubtful.
While New Yorkers enjoy the last few rides in the city's fleet of trusty Ford Crown Victoria taxis, the production lines are running for 23 hours six days a week in Mexico making "the Taxi of Tomorrow." Don't worry, it comes with USB chargers for your phones and other devices.
We like to rag on the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet a lot because it's expensive, not especially attractive, and its purpose is hard to discern. But vans trump SUVs in my book, and so this is the convertible Nissan I think you'll really want. Meet the Nissan Evalia C.

In 2013, the Ford Crown Victoria taxis will begin disappearing from city streets and will be replaced by Nissan's brand new NV200 van. It will be the first purpose built taxi roaming NYC in decades and promises to be the cab of the future.
For an auto show in New York, it makes sense that one of the cars everyone's most interested in is a cab. Specifically, the Nissan "Taxi Of Tomorrow" re-revealed yesterday. And while the design is novel (at least from the perspective of the old Crown Vics), almost everything in it is immediately understandable to cab…
New York's Taxi of Tomorrow was revealed in production form today, although you'll likely have to wait until next year to get a ride in it if your last name isn't Bloomberg. This 2014 Nissan NV200 doesn't have the regal name like a Crown Victoria, or the iconic style of a Checker, but it has airbags. Oh so many…
