Continuing its journey to commercial excellence, The London Electric Vehicle Company has today announced a new strategic alliance with Ascott Cab Co, appointing it as an official retailer of its TX4 model.
The agreement will allow Ascott Cab Co to sell the iconic TX4 London Taxi to retail customers through its flagship dealership in Deptford, south London, giving customers greater choice and flexibility. It will become the first TX4 retailer in London outside the London Electric Vehicle Company, which has its showroom in Brewery Road, Islington, North London.
The alliance with Ascott Cab Co will allow the London Electric Vehicle Company to benefit from the company’s position in the market and high standards in customer service.
Ascott Cab Co will take responsibility for vehicle plating, meter installation, customer insurance and part exchanges, with the London Electric Vehicle Company retaining responsibility for product quality, vehicle registration and manufacturer warranty provision.
Commenting on the deal, The London Electric Vehicle Company’s Vice President of UK Operations, Peter Johansen said:
“The standards that Ascott Cab Co upholds in customer care and quality perfectly reflect our values at the London Electric Vehicle Company and set a benchmark for the future. It will allow the company to take advantage of the vast market knowledge, loyalty and connection it clearly has with its customer base.”
The deal will run for a six-month trial period and, if successful, there is potential to use it as a platform for the next generation of products as the London Electric Vehicle Company looks to the future.
Andy Ascott from Ascott Cab Co said:
“This is an exciting opportunity for Ascott Cab Co and welcome recognition of the high standards we set ourselves. I think our appreciation for customer service and the understanding of the trade in London means we’re well positioned for success now and in the future”
The London Electric Vehicle Company will be exhibiting at the Private Hire and Taxi Exhibition over the 13th and 14th May in Milton Keynes at the Millbrook Proving Ground.
