Hail the all-new electric London taxiEarlier this month, LEVC’s electric TX taxi (www.theelectrictaxi.co.uk) was certified to carry fare-paying passengers.

According to the manufacturer, the TX is “a revolution for passengers” — with unrivalled ride comfort, class-leading wheelchair accessibility, air conditioning, phone charging and a more spacious cabin with six seats.

Features include a panoramic roof, wide-opening rear-hinged doors, power sockets for laptops, on-board wi-fi and contactless-card machines.

Chris Gubbey, CEO of LEVC, said: “After extensive testing, our new taxi is ready to do the job it was made for: transporting people around London safely, cleanly and stylishly.

"We have produced a new icon, the world’s most advanced electric taxi.”

After being put through the most rigorous testing regime in the company’s history, including extreme-weather conditions in the Arctic Circle and Arizona, the new TX is ready to go to work — ahead of Transport for London’s January 2018 deadline for all newly licensed taxis to be ‘zero-emission capable’.

LEVC chairman Carl-Peter Forster said: “There have been many milestones on this journey, from opening a brand-new factory in the heart of the UK — the first brand-new automotive manufacturing facility in Britain for over a decade and the first dedicated electric-vehicle factory in the UK — to the announcement that our new TX is now able to carry fare-paying passengers.

“It will save drivers money, while providing new levels of comfort and convenience for passengers — and this is just the start.

“We will deliver new TX models later in 2018, and our goal is to be the global automotive leader in urban commercial vehicles.”

Be seen in all the right places!
