The London EV Company (LEVC) signed a record in September with its best month of sales in company history with 352 examples of its electric TX Taxi sold.
LEVC has seen major demand for the TX model across the UK and Europe, with 3,000 sold since its launch in early 2018, with drivers and fleet owners enjoying its clever eCity technology, which combines 80 miles of zero-emissions pure electric range with the flexibility of a total electrically driven range of 377 miles – made possible thanks to the on-board range-extender.
London remains the TX Taxi’s biggest market but the world’s most advanced cab is on the streets in over 20 cities across the UK, including Birmingham, Coventry, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh. It is also proving extremely successful overseas too, with sales in Germany, Norway, the Netherlands, France, Sweden, Hong Kong and Malaysia.
LEVC’s range will grow further in 2020 with the launch of a new electric van, based on the TX Taxi and sharing the same eCity technology, along with the recently launched TX Shuttle, focused on the growing ride sharing and taxis markets across Europe. These new products will create further opportunities across Europe and beyond. By 2022, LEVC expects that 70 percent of the vehicles built at its Coventry factory will be for export while the remaining 30 percent will service the UK.
By 2024, the company aims to have fleets of TXs and electric vans operating in major cities around the world.
