It doesn't look all that much like a Nissan Leaf, but the new e-NV200 that started production in Barcelona, Spain today shares its powertrain and lithium-ion battery with the world's most popular electric vehicle. The production version of the electric cargo van was unveiled late last year and today's manufacturing start is right on time wit
Nissan is ready to duplicate the success of its all-electric Leaf with its zero-emissions e-NV200 electric compact van, and the company is on schedule to start selling it to the public next year. The Japanese automaker is now in the "final development phase" for the e-NV200 after trying it out with various commercial companies since 2011. Nissan is
There's a great history to purpose-built taxis. London still uses the same type of Black Cab, but while New York's iconic Checker cabs have long since disappeared – replaced by Ford Crown Vics and all manner of other vehicle – they're making a comeback in the form of the Noah Joseph
Right about now, Nissan must be wishing it had a baked-in a shorter development time for its NV200 hybrid. Nissan started production on the taxi version of the NV200 about a year ago and has previously stated it will offer a hybrid version out by 2015.
Nissan has already announced that its NV200 will be New York City's Taxi of Tomorrow, but now small businesses can also take advantage of the compact commercial van when it goes on sale this April. Unveiled at the
No matter where you go in New York City, yellow taxi cabs speckle the landscape, and the newly named Taxi of Tomorrow will certainly help continue this trend. After winning the bid to supply the Big Apple's iconic taxis, Nissan designers based in San Diego, California spent about a year coming up with the perfect shade of ye
It looks like Nissan made a special delivery at the Commercial Vehicle International Motor Show in Hanover, Germany, this week: a special concept version of the battery-electric e-NV200 panel van that it's been testing with FedEx since late last year.
Oh, how we love "rebranding." From the stumblebums at The Gap to the desperate deckhands on the Microsoft Titanic, needlessly changing your logo is all the rage these days, so we shouldn't be surprised to see the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission join in on the fun by eliminating the
The little black cab is to London what the yellow Ford Crown Victoria has been up to New York City. With the departure of Ford's Panther platform, Nissan has stepped in with its all-new NV200, which will soon be spreading like kudzu George Kennedy
There are two directions automakers can go to produce a vehicle with electric propulsion – be it a hybrid or an outright EV: make it look the same as any other car, or make it stand out. Like Toyota (for example) did with the Prius, Nissan made the Leaf look (for better or worse) unlike a conventi

"So here's the pitch. It's a movie about a car. But it's not really about a car. It's about something else. What that is isn't important. But it's got a car in it. Not just one car, but lots of cars. Thousands of them actually. And they're in almost every scene. But only in the background. And get this: They're all... wait for it... yellow! And the best part is, we don't have to pay anything for it, in fact, they're going to pay us to put our cars in the movie. And it's going to make o
This year's New York Auto Show brought many new cars out of their secret design studios and into view, most for the very first time. The Viper returned and the Delorean Electric was priced, but below are the entries that caught our eyes most.
Despite having a media center that's plagued with bad coffee and prone to the occasional journalist fight, the New York Auto Show is one of our favorite automotive expos. It's not an all-out automotive blitzkrieg like Geneva, but the vast majority of New York debut
Attendees at the New York Auto Show are getting their first hands-on look at the all-new 2014 Nissan NV200, the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission's choice to replace much of its taxi fleet beginning in late 2013. "The Nissan NV 200 unveiled today will be the safest, mos
It takes but six months to crown a new American Idol, but the search for a replacement New York City taxi has taken five years, and the winner is finally ready to collect its flowers and contract.
