They promise the new 1.6 litre petrol-engine will be cleaner than the current diesel cabs - and are planning to launch an electric taxi in 2016.

The new Nissan taxi is equipped with an automatic gearbox and strong lighting to show off the iconic taxi sign.

Londoners will be seeing a lot more of these from December, when it goes on sale.

The new-look taxi has been developed by Nissan's European design centre in Paddington.

This will be followed by the electric version, which is shown below.
