While Nissan’s Taxi of Tomorrow, the NV200, will be the official cab of Manhattan, the other boroughs of New York City are still open to any other cars.And now, Mayor Bloomberg has revealed the official colour.

According to The New York Times, the taxis for the outer boroughs will be painted in a mint green, which the Mayor is actually referring to as “Apple Green.”

Why the different colour? It’s intended to make it easier for residents of the outer boroughs to recognise which cabs more readily service their areas.

While we understand the different colour scheme for the cabs, the green hue is much less of an apple and closer to mint or wasabi.

Let us know what you’d call it in the comments.
