The CO2 saving is the equivalent to the emissions of more than 111,000 passenger flights from London to Sydney.

In addition, LEVC's TX has travelled more than 700 million miles globally, with the company producing more than 10,000 of its revolutionary electric TX taxis, which have been sold throughout the world. In London, the TX has now overtaken the diesel-powered TX4 as the most common black cab, with more than 7,500 TXs operating on the streets of the capital. 

“This remarkable achievement demonstrates the success of our electric TX since it launched in 2018, and highlights the positive contribution it is making to the air quality of our cities” said Alex Nan, CEO of LEVC. “LEVC is incredibly proud to support the taxi trade, as it transitions to a clean, safe and accessible mobility future. The business is committed to creating more sustainable cities through innovative and accessible mobility solutions, as part of our new strategic direction to become a zero carbon mobility technology company.”

The TX features flexible space for up to six passengers, an integrated wheelchair ramp enabling the TX to accommodate a forward-facing wheelchair – the only taxi of its kind to do so, and a pure EV range of 78 miles with a total range-extended capacity of 333 miles.

Currently, the TX now sustainable transport to both drivers and passengers in more than 20 countries.

LEVC manufactures the TX at its state-of-the-art facility in Ansty, Coventry. With an investment of over £500 million from the Geely Holding Group since 2014, LEVC has built the UK's first dedicated manufacturing plant for electric vehicles.
