eCity Technology

Offers a drastic reduction in operating costs, a decreased environmental impact, & flexibility to drive as normal

New eCity technology gives you the flexibility to continue operating even when the battery is low and achieve a typical fuel saving of £100 per week


The new TX presents all the advantages that come with an electric vehicle but avoids many of the shortcomings of electric-only vehicles

We understand taxi drivers cover more daily miles than most, which is why the battery packs in TX are supported by a small petrol engine to eliminate any range-anxiety and ensure you're always able to collect that extra fare.

Drive all day with a total range of 377 miles

The range extender in TX giving drivers the flexibility to travel 377 miles before they need to recharge - meaning you stop when you want to, not when you need to.

How does it work? When the battery gets low, the economic petrol range extender kicks in and acts as a generator for the battery. This give the electric motor the extra power needed to drive the taxi.

Three intuitive driving modes work together seamlessly to make it easier to drive more efficiently

Smart mode is the recommended and easiest option for most situations. It switches automatically between using the lithium-ion battery and the petrol-powered range extender.

Pure EV mode disables the range extender, using only electric power. Naturally, this consumes no petrol and produces no emissions – a very effective option for inner-city driving. If your battery becomes depleted, an indicator will advise you to select a different driving mode.

Save mode runs the range extender to conserve the battery charge for later use. This can prove especially useful for drivers who commute to work using fast roads, as it allows them to use electric power in urban areas (in which petrol is consumed at a higher rate)

Typical fuel saving of £100 per week

Electricity as a fuel is significantly cheaper than diesel or petrol, which means driving the new TX is kinder to the environment and your wallet.

By maximising the range offered by operating on the battery, drivers of our current model could achieve a typical fuel saving of around £100 per week, which equates to a total fuel cost saving of around £24,000 over a 5-year period.

Reduced servicing & maintenance, so you save even more

TX helps drivers maximise business potential by minimising time off the road needed for regular maintenance work.

The electric motor works in tandem with the petrol range extender to significant reduce the amount of ware of both elements; as effectively they're doing half the work of a vehicle powered by a traditional internal-combustion engine.

To demonstrate this, we can offer market leading service intervals for a commerical EV of 25,000 miles; so drivers of our current model can expect to spend approximately half as much on servicing.

Regenerative Braking - Giving drivers free energy

To further maximise the range offered by driving in pure EV mode, the TX utilises regenerative coasting and braking. When the driver takes their foot from the accelerator or presses the brake pedal, stored kinetic energy is redirected back to the engine. The level of regeneration, furthermore, can be altered to suit your personal preferences.

A cleaner, greener taxi

TX meets increasingly demanding legislation aimed at reducing pollution and improving air quality in cities, as well as appealing to the general public thanks to its environmentally-friendly credentials - so together we're helping to improve the air quality for everyone in cities.

The electric taxi enable drivers to continue working in cities under tighter regulations, qualify for national or local subsidies and in turn benefit from fuel savings, tax discounts and other local incentives, such as use of bus lanes or free parking.
