Additional 500 cars added to taxi fleet in Dubai

Dubai Taxi has taken delivery of 500 brand new vehicles to add to its ever-expanding fleet.The new vehicles are all Nissan Altima models through an agreement with Arabian Automobiles, which deals Nissan, Infiniti and Renault cars throughout Dubai and the Northern Emirates.Felix Welch, sales and marketing director at Dubai Taxi Corporation, said in a statement, seen by Emirates 24/7: "Government departments are key partners in our business, and we enthusiastically welcome such agreements which strengthen the relationship between the company and the public sector."The Nissan Altima is a car known for its comfort and durability, and has consistently maintained its high quality and unmatched value in the mid-size sedan class. We are confident that DTC's passengers will appreciate and enjoy the high standards of the vehicle."Before the deal, Dubai Taxi had 3,504 vehicles in its fleet. The move will take Nissan's share of the fleet to 14 per cent.
