Since the restart of manufacture of its iconic Black Cab at its Coventry facility, The London Electric Vehicle Company has now produced more than 1,000 London Taxi TX4s!
With the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) reporting a year-on-year positive output for UK automotive production of 3.5% growth in May, The London Electric Vehicle Company’s own production team have reached their first milestone, having produced their 1,000th vehicle since the manufacturing of the TX4 restarted last September.
Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive was quoted as saying “…new UK-built models will benefit from growing demand across Europe, while significant investments in UK manufacturing operations are moving closer to production readiness.”
This is certainly the case for the Coventry-based Black Cab manufacturer. With sales in the UK and International markets continuing apace, the future looks bright for The London Electric Vehicle Company, its customers and UK manufacturing in general.
Director of Retail Rob Laidler commented: “Given the challenges of restarting production, as well as the implementation of new quality monitoring and management processes, we are all extremely proud of the hard work and determination demonstrated by our colleagues working in Production.
“This is an exciting period of development and progress for the entire company; we still have much that we want to achieve and implement, however, this milestone should quite rightly be a moment for the team to pause and reflect on positively.”
