Washington, Apr 4 (ANI) : New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg unveiled a state-of-art " Taxi of Tomorrow" at the New York Auto Show on Tuesday.

The taxi is a Nissan NV 200, which Bloomberg describes as "fantastic".Visitors and New Yorkers are really going to love getting in this cab," the New York Post quoted Bloomberg, as saying.

The taxi, a custom built car, comes with a transparent roof and anti-microbial seats along with air bags for passengers.

Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan , said," It's the first cab to ever be crash tested with the partition installed." He further describes it as a "unique challenge" to design something for the New Yorkers.

"All the time I've sat in taxis where there's no leg room, with the hump in middle, this is unbelievable," Bloomberg said. (ANI)
