The NYC Taxi of the Future is a Nissan van, with an easy access sliding door, more legroom inside, more cargo space in the back, and a panoramic roof to enjoy the NYC skyline. You can take a FREE virtual ride in the NYC Taxi of the Future, now on display in the The Taxi of Tomorrow Design Expo, in the pedestrian mall on 23rd St, at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway. Climb inside and check out the features. The free exhibit is open today, Tuesday, November 1, through Saturday, November 5th. Today only, the exhibit opens at noon and closes at 9 PM. Wednesday-Saturday, it is open 9 AM to 9 PM, with Nissan staff on hand to answer your questions. The NYC Taxi of the Future goes into service in 2013, and will replace Ford Crown Victoria and Nissan Altima sedans, even the Toyota Prius hybrid and SUV model taxis as those vehicles wear out and fleet owners replace them with the new model.
