The 10-year agreement with Nissan will eventually replace to replace all NYC cabs with the company’s NV200 vans.

No word yet on the vehicle’s gas milage.

Higher fuel cost=higher taxi fares. Eventually something will have to be done.

I wonder if NYC could support eco-driving education for taxi drivers. Taxi drivers would save a lot of money if they adapted a few simple changes, like not idling and smoother acceleration and braking, proper tire inflation, etc. Taxi drivers are among the worst offenders at hard acceleration only to get to the next light and slam on the brakes. I suspect they think this impresses their riders, but this may not be true.
