On a more serious note, though. Are the cabs in NYC public-owned? It seems a bit odd to have the situation where the local government choose what model of car they're going to use. Over here we see a mix of all sorts ranging from Qashqais (yes, really!) to Octavias to the classic FX4s and the metrocab (I know, Taxi and MiniCab are different things).
 
I did like the bit about them not being allowed to use fuel consumption as a sole criteria. That makes sense, or they'd all be smart cars! Although it's essential to consider it somewhere, I guess. The New machine looks well adapted to the mission it's being put to.

i think it has to do with the NYC cab's iconic status. It is almost a brand and so the city has a say in what they should be as they are an advert for them. In Portsmouth any new Hackney carriages have to be silver.
