The Electrified London Taxi Is Heading To Germany

A couple of months after the London EV Company (LEVC) unveiled its new electric taxi cab for Britain’s capital, the company has released a German version at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The TX taxi is largely the same as the UK-spec model but it has been painted in Eifelbein, a beige color that was required for all German taxis between 1971 and 2005. The London EV Company says it doesn’t just intend on tackling pollution issues in its home city but wants to do the same in Germany and other cities throughout Europe.

Power for the TX is provided by a battery electric powertrain and a small petrol generator. All-electric range will sit at over 120 km and be perfect for inner-city use. Range increases to over 640 km when the range extender kicks in.

Beyond its European expansion, the London EV Company plans on building and selling the TX in China.

In a statement, LEVC chairman Carl-Peter Forster said “This is an incredibly exciting time for the company, for Europe, for the air we breathe and for drivers of commercial vehicles across the world. The reveal of the taxi in Germany’s trademark taxi colours is a statement of intent – we are here to tackle the air pollution crisis in cities across Europe with the most advanced taxi in the world”.

    Tbh, beige is a horrible color for a taxi, or for any car in fact.. The using of this color should be limited to clothing and furniture..

    BTW, lovely taxi.
