London EV Company (LEVC), formerly the London Taxi Company, has premiered its all-new electric TX six-seater taxi at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2017.
Revealed in Germany’s famous ‘taxi beige’ colour for the first time, the TX is an addition to the visionary New Mobility World at the Frankfurt International Auto Show.
The all-new electric zero-emissions-capable TX showcases its eCity technology for the first time, comprising an advanced battery electric powertrain with a small petrol generator.
Applied to the TX, the technology allows for a range of around 400 miles including well over 70 miles range with zero emissions for inner city operations where noise and air pollution is most acute.
eCity technology is purposefully designed for commercial operators that face demanding and unpredictable duty cycles, require complete range assurance, and demand zero-emissions capability to meet the clean air challenges of urban centres while also reducing fuel costs for operators.
In addition, the TX has a range of accessibility features including side access and forward facing wheelchair capability.
Commenting from Germany, LEVC chairman, Carl-Peter Forster, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for the company, for Europe, for the air we breathe and for drivers of commercial vehicles across the world.
“The reveal of the taxi in Germany’s trademark taxi colours is a statement of intent - we are here to tackle the air pollution crisis in cities across Europe with the most advanced taxi in the world”.
