Starting November 1st, New York City’s ‘Taxi of Tomorrow’ will be on display across from the flatiron building near Madison Square Park. The contract was awarded to Nissan and will apparently be used for all NYC taxis starting in late 2014. Older models could remain in service but would eventually be replaced by this one. Some of the key features:

  • Panoramic sunroof throughout the whole back seat
  • Passenger charging stations – one outlet and two USB ports
  • Passenger airbags
  • Sliding doors with lights (no more opening doors into bikers)
  • Anti-bacterial, non-stick seats
  • High fuel efficiency
  • Ability to be manufactured with fully electric power
  • Independent passenger climate controls with filtered air

Here is a video of the taxi.
