London’s famous taxi, LEVC TX, will run on the roads in Delhi

Don’t be surprised if you’re in Delhi and see a taxi on the streets that looks like the ones on the streets of London. This is because London EV Company (LEVC), is all set to bring these vehicles to the Indian capital in an electric avatar. The name of this taxi is TX. These taxis will look almost the same as the iconic taxis seen in London. But what will be the difference is that the electric motor has been used in the taxi coming to India.

How is the car
The car is based on a bonded aluminum chassis. It gets a plug-in series hybrid powertrain. The car uses a Volvo-sourced petrol engine and a 33 kWh battery pack that powers a 148 BHP electric motor. Every car has six seats, wheelchair accessibility, and a purpose-built partition that separates the driver from the passengers.

There can be a lot of hope from this in the future as the TX is a zero-emission vehicle. It has an onboard charging system and a range extender. It can travel up to 101 kms, but the company claims that it also has a flexible range of up to 500 kms.

LEVC recently announced a partnership with Exclusive Motors Pvt Ltd to bring the TX range to the Indian subcontinent. The company is emphasizing not only a clean mobility option but also employment opportunities through its products.

Majesty Alan Gemmell, Trade Commissioner for South Asia, said, “I am delighted that LEVC’s innovative future mobility solutions are capturing opportunities in India’s dynamic and growing electric vehicle market. There are ambitious plans to deepen, and benefit both economies, and this is a great example of what we can do together.”

As a company, LECV was established in 1908, when the first dedicated black cab was designed and commissioned specifically for use in London. Although the vehicles of this company have been the identity of the streets of London. But the company introduced the electric vehicle TX in the year 2018 to keep pace with the changing times.
