- As London’s black cab fleet electrification shifts into overdrive, LEVC’s TX charges ahead, commanding over 50% of the capital’s licensed taxis.
- The TX has clocked over 700 million miles, preventing 200,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions since its inception.
LEVC’s TX electrifies the streets of London, commandeering over 50% of licensed taxis, as the black cab fleet’s electrification charges full speed ahead.
Over 50% of London’s iconic black cabs have embraced the electric revolution, courtesy of LEVC’s cutting-edge electric taxi. The TX isn’t just a vehicle – it’s a pivotal force driving the transformation towards sustainable and inclusive urban transportation.
Alex Nan, CEO of LEVC, commented:
“With more than half the black cabs on London’s streets now electric, thanks to the iconic TX, today represents another momentous milestone for LEVC. We would like to thank London’s famous black cab drivers, who have been instrumental in this achievement. Since its launch, the TX has delivered an unrivalled sustainable mobility solution. Globally the TX has saved an incredible 200,000 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere, with London leading the way in helping us to achieve that. But there is always more that we can do. Other cities can learn from London’s world-leading approach, improving air quality throughout urban settings, to the benefit of the public and the environment. LEVC is committed to working alongside policymakers to demonstrate the positive impact that the TX is having in our cities, as we seek to continue building a greener and more accessible transport network better suited for all.“
Accelerating the UK capital’s journey to net zero, LEVC’s electric TX is propelling the shift away from fossil fuels. Over half of London’s 14,700 black taxis are now actively engaged in purifying the city’s air, significantly reducing the environmental footprint of its iconic taxi fleet. The rapid adoption of LEVC’s electric technology marks a substantial stride toward a cleaner and greener London.
Helen Chapman, Transport for London’s Director of Licensing and Regulation, said:
“London’s black taxis are recognised worldwide and we are proud to see that so many drivers are helping clean up our air and assist us in tackling the city’s health emergency by driving zero emission capable vehicles (ZEC). Reaching this milestone is a great reflection of how London is working hard to be a greener, more sustainable, environmentally friendly city. We know that by bringing more electric and ZEC vehicles to London we can continue to bring down the level of harmful chemicals in the air and reduce the impact of road transport on our environment. Making the taxi fleet cleaner and bringing more electric vehicle charging points to the capital are significant parts of the wider efforts we’re making to help continue being London’s strong, green heartbeat, cleaning London’s air, and helping get Londoners around the city in the greenest ways possible.”
As the electric TX fleet in the UK expands, the positive impact of this purpose-built vehicle on cities continues to grow. Fuelled by its groundbreaking eCity technology, LEVC’s electric TX taxi has covered over 700 million miles worldwide, preventing more than 200,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions since its launch in 2018. This remarkable achievement underscores the vehicle’s crucial role in advancing sustainable urban mobility and combating climate change on a global scale.
