London’s all-new electric taxi has launched at Battersea Power Station.

The TX, influenced by the capital’s famous ‘black cab’, is powered by new-range electric technology and is said to draw on the design heritage of its predecessors.

The six-seater comes with forward-facing wheelchair access, power sockets for laptops, USB ports, on-board Wi-Fi, a panoramic roof and passive safety systems.

Its e-City technology, designed by its manufacturer London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC), allows for up to 400 miles and 80 miles with zero emissions.

Nearly 1,000 electric vehicle charging points are planned to be installed at Battersea Power Station in the future, with the first 57 currently available for use.

LEVC’s chief executive Chris Gubbey said: “Better for passengers, more cost effective for drivers, it will play a major role in helping to improve air quality benefiting all Londoners.

“I am immensely proud of the work we have carried out so far: we have produced a new icon, the world’s most advanced electric taxi.”

London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) unveiled the new vehicle at Circus West Village in Battersea Power Station on Tuesday, December 4.

The occasion marked the 65th anniversary of the ‘Great London Smog’, which was hosted at Battersea Power Station.
