If Hollywood ever attempts a Taxi Driver remake set in present-day New York City, they'd better do it soon because Travis Bickle just won't be the same driving around the city in one of New York's new minivan taxis. NYC, meet the Nissan NV200, your taxi cab of tomorrow. Starting in late 2013, this Nissan front-wheel-drive minivan will slowly take over the city streets, with all current taxi models scheduled to be entirely phased out by 2018. The vehicle has sliding doors, a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine and driver/passenger intercoms. It fits four passengers and their luggage and features a full-length glass roof to offer tourists an unobstructed view of the passing skyscrapers. Busy New Yorkers on the go will love the built-in mobile charging station with 12-volt electrical outlet and two USB ports. Finally, anti-microbial seat fabric mimics the look and feel of leather, while curtain airbags for both front and rear seat occupants provide added safety. Check out more looks following the click.
