Nissan’s taxi on Driving the Nation – it’s not Ben Bailey or cash cab, but..

Peter Bedrosian, Product Planning Manager for Nissan Commercial Vehicle, talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, Driving the Nation at the 2014 Chicago auto show about the design by Nissan of the taxi. Bedrosian says it is the first time a car company has designed a vehicle as a turn-key taxi with an integrated partition.

Lots of room for bags, a great seat arrangement with all the USB and 12-volt charge ports one would need plus an independent  air conditioning system and micro filter for the passenger. Bedrosian goes through the whole taxi and why it is more comfortable than the taxis being used today.

It’s not Ben Bailey and cash cab. You won’t win cash, you won’t be on TV, but you will have a better ride.
