London EV Company (LEVC) has announced it has manufactured 2,500 of its TX electric taxis.

To mark the milestone, LEVC displayed the 2,500th TX to have been built in London’s Trafalgar Square.

More than £500m has been invested by its parent company GEELY into developing and manufacturing the electric taxi since 2014. The company says its 2,500 cabs have already prevented 6,800 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC, says: “When this project began in 2014, we set out to make the world’s most advanced taxi, to distil over 70 years of cab-building knowledge into an all-new leader in urban zero emissions mobility. The endorsement from drivers is compelling while passengers love TX’s comfort, space and connectivity features.”

He adds: “We are proud to be supporting the city of London in its efforts to improve air quality – and doing the same across the UK. In the very near future we will be further driving TX sales in Europe and expanding our range with a new LCV. Our goal is to be the leading European green commercial mobility solution provider.”

In the near future, LEVC says it will add to its commercial vehicle range with a new line-up of models that will use shared technology with GEELY Commercial Vehicles.
