LTC kicked off the new registration in style, handing over the company’s best ever TX4 to the very first customer purchasing a 15 plate on Sunday 1st March 2015.
The Brewery Road dealership opened specially to hand over new vehicles to eagerly awaiting drivers, with Mr Wadey and his wife first in line to collect a new 15 plate TX4.
Commenting on his new London Taxi, Mr Wadey said: “My new TX4 is fantastic; it’s so much better than any other taxi I’ve ever driven! It’s more solid and a smoother ride. I’ve previously rented TX1s and TX4s so I’m thrilled to have my own vehicle. Ever since passing the Knowledge it was my intention to have my own cab; it gives me more flexibility.
“My daughter was my first passenger in my new ’15 plate; we collected her from Victoria station in order to take her to Heathrow for a flight. And it’s certainly turned heads; I’ve already had passers-by stop to take pictures of my new cab.”
TX4 quality has been improved through a variety of initiatives including a focus on component quality, as well as the build process and auditing checks undertaken at the iconic Black Cab manufacturer’s Coventry production facility.
These improvements in quality have resulted in even higher residual values for TX4, as well as an increase in the standard warranty cover provided. From 1st March, customers will receive an extra 20,000 miles cover, with an increase in the comprehensive manufacturer-backed warranty from 100,000 to 120,000 miles over 3 years.
‘15 Plate TX4 Elegance (automatic) is available from £39,195OTR or from just £145 a week (or £625 per month) over four years through a Personal Contact Purchase (PCP) plan, with a £2,995 deposit.
The deal also includes 12 month’s road tax and one year’s RAC cover – all included in the price.
This package has been designed to provide drivers with flexibility as well as peace of mind. So, in four year’s customers can choose to buy the TX4 for a guaranteed residual value of £15,725, trade up to a new London Taxi or simply walk away.
Fitted with Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), ‘15 Plate TX4 Elegance is Euro 5 compliant and is the cleanest, greenest, and safest London Taxi to date.
