BraunAbility® NV200 Taxi
Making Your Commercial Fleet More Efficient
Taxi of Tomorrow, the NV2001, is a dream made real by the collaboration between Nissan and BraunAbility. It was designed from the inside out, using input from New York taxi drivers, medallion holders, fleets and passengers. Powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, the Nissan NV200 is designed to reduce carbon emissions and enhance fuel efficiency across the entire taxi fleet as old models are replaced.
This wheelchair accessible taxi isn’t just accessible for wheelchair users —all taxis come pre-fitted with a device that transmits sound directly to a hearing aid or cochlear implant. And the seatbelts and other key features of the cab have yellow markers to make them high-contrast and easier to see for those with visual impairments
The NV200’s rear-entry design features a bi-fold ramp that unfolds to accommodate one wheelchair user. The ramp folds flat to allow plenty of luggage room in the rear of the vehicle when the ramp is not in use. One of the NV200’s unique features is that the front tie-downs actually stretch out of the back door of the van and hook around the user’s chair before they even enter in the cab, guiding the, up the ramp.
The NV200 is also equipped with an intercom that allows the driver to speak to the passengers. It can also allow the driver to hear what is going on in the backseat, so if they need to give the driver directions or ask to turn up the heat, it’s easy.
The wheelchair ramp is 30 inches wide, with a ramp angle of 8.6 degrees, which far exceeds ADA regulations. It also has a load rating of 800 pounds, 200 pounds above the ADA minimum.
