Nissan has released additional specifications for its 2014 NV200 taxi that went into service in New York City in December amid legal controversy that it had been given preferential treatment by the city's taxi commission.

The NV200 taxi, which initially arrives for the 2014 model-year, offers four-passenger seating (not including the driver) and fuel economy rated at 23 miles per gallon city and 26 mpg highway. It gets a 14.5-gallon fuel tank.

Nissan has also released NV200 taxi's overall height (74.5 inches), overall length (186.3 inches), and turning diameter (36.7 degrees). The vehicle is powered by a 2.0L DOHC four-cylinder engine that generates 131 horsepower and 139 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is mated to a CVT automatic transmission. The rear doors open up to 180 degrees with a 40/60 split.

The first 200 NV200 taxis went into service in New York City in late 2013. Several hundred additional taxis were delivered to dealers in Seattle, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and Texas, according to Nissan.

Nissan is also working on a battery-electric variant known as the e-NV200. It should be available for NYC's Taxi of Tomorrow fleet by 2017.
