Karsan USA is the United States affiliate of the Turkish automotive manufacturer, Karsan. Karsan USA was established in 2008 in response to a request for information issued by the New York Taxi and Limousine Commission for their Taxi of Tomorrow. Karsan's V1 design was one of three shortlisted (the others being the Nissan NV200 and Ford Transit Connect). While the V1 was voted most popular, the contract was ultimately awarded to Nissan in 2011.[1] Karsan continued to pursue the North American market and introduced their low floor minibus, Jest, in 2015. At the same time, the company was pursuing a contract as part of a consortium for up to 300 buses for Miami-Dade Transit. The contract was awarded to another consortium that partnered with New Flyer.
