  • 2,507 electric TX models sold in 2019
  • Significant rise in demand from taxi and ride sharing shuttle services, more than double 2018 sales
  • Consistent planned growth month-on-month since April 2019
  • Range grows further this year with the launch of a new electric van
  • LEVC continues its strategic objective of being the leading green commercial mobility provider 

The London EV Company is celebrating a record sales year, thanks to month-on-month growth in 2019, delivering an impressive 2,507 sales of its electric TX model and more than doubling the volume of the previous year. The TX has not only proved successful in London but across the UK and overseas too, with growing demand from taxi operators and ride sharing shuttle services in Germany, France, Switzerland, Denmark, Middle East and Japan.

Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC commented:

Our TX has been a huge success with drivers and passengers alike; the fact that we have more than doubled sales to 2,507 vehicles this year is testament to that. The TX provides the perfect solution to the growing demand for green mobility solutions in cities across the world, and we rapidly continue to grow our export business to introduce TX taxi and TX shuttle to more new markets.

We will also grow our product range in 2020, with the launch of a new electric van. This exciting new model will enable the commercial vehicle sector to also benefit from the successful TX combination of eCity technology, unrivalled turning circle capability and renowned durability.”

  

Introduced to the market at the start of 2018, the world’s most advanced electric taxi has delighted drivers and fleet owners with its eCity technology, which combines 80 miles (128km) of zero-emissions pure electric range with the flexibility of a total electrically driven range of 377 miles (600km) - made possible thanks to the on-board range-extender.

Over 3,800 TX electric taxis have now been sold since launch, making a significant international contribution to improving air quality. So far, 30 thousand tonnes of CO2 has been prevented from entering the atmosphere – the same as 1,785 return flights from London to Melbourne. While travelling a combined distance of 95 million miles, the same as driving around the world 3,815 times, fossil fuel usage has been cut significantly, by 17.5 million litres compared to the previous diesel taxi and saving drivers more than £17 million in running costs.

Passengers also benefit from the TX’s quiet, comfortable and luxurious cabin – capable of seating six – alongside charging points for mobile phones and laptops, on-board Wi-Fi and a breath-taking panoramic roof.
