The new cabs will be based on Nissan's NV200 commercial van. Among its special features will be a "low-annoyance" horn that works in tandem with blinking lights to gently urge pedestrians and drivers to get out of the way.
It will also have a mobile charging station and USB outlets that can be used by passengers.
