New York City's new taxi model has arrived in the city, ahead of its official debut.

The Nissan NV200 - 'Taxi of Tomorrow' - was selected from three finalists, and is a brighter yellow colour than current taxis.

The taxi will be phased in from October 2013, and is expected to fully replace all other cab models by 2018.

Steven Oldham from Nissan reveals some of its special features, including a panoramic sunroof.
