That was the NV 200. The NV200 is not approved for retail sales in the US, so the NYC taxi fleet will be the only sales in the US. It is sold in Asian markets however.
Also, the Transit Connect was the Ford approved for NYC taxi use. The full size Transit isn't selling quite yet.
Transit (Full Size):
The full size transit will finally give Ford an under 8500 GVWR full size van, which has been missing since '07 when the E150 became a 3/4-ton. It will likely replace the the E250 as well, but the heavy vans will still be E-series.
