NV200 to hit the streets of Barcelona

Monday, November 26 2012

Nissan’s new NV200 is to hit the streets of Barcelona very soon, as a part of the Catalonian city’s taxi network. Barcelona will be the first European city to receive the taxi, followed by our very own London next year.¬†Available to buy from the 2nd January 2013, the taxi will be powered by a 110hp, 1.5 litre diesel engine and has two sliding doors which gives plenty of space; enough, in fact, for up to four passengers and five large suitcases.

Following an investment of 100 million Euros, and the creation of 700 jobs, the battery-powered version of the van will be created from the end of 2013, with electric taxi models going into production in mid-2014.
