Electric Vehicle Battery Upgrade for London's 'Green' Taxis

On the 1st August LEVC (London EV Company) opened its order book for the all-new TX electric taxi with eCity technology. Ahead of taking deposits for the first time and opening the order book, LEVC confirms final pricing and indicative running costs for the all-new TX model. The launch finance package – through which more than 90% of drivers are expected to buy the new TX – is confirmed at £177 per week, including the battery over five years. The outgoing TX4 model was priced at £167 per week over four years. LEVC’s Commercial Director, Richard Gordon, said: “I am delighted to announce such a competitive package for the new electric TX. Market leading in every way, this is a truly outstanding new vehicle that will revolutionise the taxi trade in London from an emissions perspective, for passenger comfort, experience and enjoyment, and importantly for the drivers.” Welcoming the opening of order book, Steve McNamara of the Licensed Taxi Drivers Association commented: “The taxi trade welcomes the arrival of this ultra clean 21st century vehicle that can only help us to win business back from private hire. We recognise the serious issues around air quality in London and cities around the UK, and look forward to offering emission free personal transport to Londoners and visitors alike.” The all new electric TX is based on eCity technology comprising a battery electric power train with range extender providing over 400 miles range between charges including well in excess of 70 miles with zero emissions. The technology is purposefully designed for commercial operators that face demanding and unpredictable duty cycles which require complete range assurance, but also significant zero emissions capability for city centre operations.
