Coming soon: London’s electric taxi TX model in India
Commercial electric vehicle manufacturer London Electric Vehicle Company is geared up to roll out electric TX vehicle in the Indian market in collaboration with Exclusive Motors.
As opposed to the older London Cab, which was powered by a diesel engine, the LEVC TX is powered by a full-electric hybrid drivetrain. It drives in full-electric mode all the time and is recharged by a Volvo-sourced 81hp, 1.5-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine.
When the battery pack has insufficient charge to power the vehicle, the petrol engine provides charge to the battery. This makes the TX a range-extending EV rather than a hybrid.
