Ford will need something to replace the stalwart Crown Victoria as a taxicab favorite. The Transit Connect small van could be just the thing.

Ford is showing it here in New York, a city known for its huge fleet of yellow-colored cabs. On this concept version, the top is filled with a front-to-back sunroof. Passengers can watch a 13-inch screen that displays information and entertainment and acts as a meter and payment interface.

The Transit Connect also offers a 30 percent improvement in fuel economy and nearly 90 percent lower tailpipe emissions than many of today's cabs, according to Ford.
