The all-electric Nissan Dynamo black cab will no longer be produced as Nissan cease production of e-NV200 Evalia van.
Dynamo Motors have however moved quickly to assure the taxi industry that a new manufacturer is being sourced with a view to re-enter the taxi industry market as soon as possible.
According to sources close to the matter, Dynamo Motors have no intention of exiting the sector and wish to build on the success of its initial Nissan Dynamo taxi model.
Nissan’s electric taxi exit from the market means only one vehicle, the LEVC TX, is now available to buy in London.
Dynamo Motor Company first released the black cab in 2019, which became the world’s first all-electric taxi in 2020 when it entered production. Used in all major cities including London, Nottingham, Cardiff, Liverpool, Coventry and Manchester, it is still known as the only Black Cab that has zero emission status.
Based on a Nissan e-NV200 Evalia MPV, the Coventry-based specialists were successful in converting the commercial vehicle to work as a commercially viable all-electric Black Cab offering for drivers and fleets.
Each Dynamo Taxi has had over 1,000 modifications to the existing Nissan e-NV200 Evalia MPV to be classed as a Black Cab. This included increasing the height of the Nissan e-NV200 Evalia MPV, kerbside wheelchair ramp access and a 25-feet turning circle.
John Heath, Dynamo Motor Company Market Development Manager, said on social media: ”Nissan have sadly ceased production of the e-NV200 which was our donor taxi we are talking to other manufacturers in relation to producing another taxi.”
