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.
