Black cabs in London switching to electric

There are now more LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) TX electric taxis on the streets of London than diesel TX4s.

Highlighting the transition away from fossil fuel, LEVC’s TX taxi – now represents more than 40% of official black cabs, with over 6,000 vehicles operating in the capital.

As sales continue to increase, so does the positive contribution LEVC’s TX is making to air quality. Powered by its eCity technology, LEVC’s electric TX taxi has travelled more than 403 million miles globally and prevented 144,043 tonnes of CO2 being emitted into the atmosphere, since it was introduced in 2018. 

In addition to its environmental benefits, TX drivers are also saving around £100 per week on running costs, when compared to traditional diesel vehicles. 

Alex Nan, CEO of LEVC, commented: We are witnessing a significant tipping point in the push towards cleaner transportation, with the TX overtaking the diesel-powered TX4 as the cab of choice in London. There are now more than 6,000 TX electric taxis operating in the capital, accounting for over 40% of the black cab fleet. 

“Since LEVC launched the revolutionary TX taxi it has successfully delivered an unrivalled sustainable mobility solution. With each new TX on the road, we are preventing thousands of tonnes of harmful emissions, helping to create healthier and happier cities.”

LEVC’s TX is capable of providing a pure EV range of more than 64 miles and a total range-extended capacity of 318 miles.
