The World Is Full Of Taxis -- And They're All Different

If you live in New York, you might assume that all taxis around the world are just yellow cars that take you from place to place.

You’d be very wrong.

While the Ford Crown Vic, and now the Nissan NV200, dominated the New York scene for years, other countries have not been close to following suit.

Some cities have run-of-the-mill hatchbacks while others are full of $US400,000 luxury cars. Basically, they run the gamut from the mundane to the sublime.

New York City: The famous yellow Fords were replaced in 2013 with this, the Nissan NV200.

Azerbaijan: Baku, Azerbaijan's capital, is now rolling in London Taxis. The difference is that they are painted deep purple.

Moscow: There are some crazy cabs in Moscow. This $400,000 Maybach 62 is just one of the wilder rides roaming the streets.

Planes can all look different, too!
