The first TX4s of the newly re-launched London Electric Vehicle Company have been handed over in both two of the black cab manufacturer’s dealerships.

The first was handed to driver-owner of 3 years, Mr David Scragg at the Brewery Road dealership on Thursday 21 March.

David, who spent 27 years in the printing industry, working on titles such as the Guardian, the Express and the Star, took ownership of his Aero Blue ’13 plate TX4 Elegance Auto at Brewery Road on Thursday 21 March. Commenting on his purchase David said: “I can’t believe I got the first one and I can’t wait to get it out onto the ranks.The first thing that the other drivers will look at is the ’13 plate!”

David was handed his keys by UK Customer Relationship Manager Lorenzo Bugliari, who said: “We’ve spent the last three weeks, working hard, taking orders and meeting new and old customers, which has been great.But I’m over the moon that we have started to hand vehicles over now; this will be the first of many.”

Not to be left behind, Manchester driver, Colin Croft, took ownership of his fifth new vehicle from Ruth Heywood on Wednesday 27 March – the first ’13 plated TX4 handover for the Broughton Street dealership.

Customers are being advised that there is 2-3 week waiting period for new vehicles, as all existing stock now has to go through a stringent vehicle preparation inspection, which also includes the fitment of components of improved quality. New vehicles can still be purchased through the £135 per week PCP deal, which includes a four year extended warranty with the option to buy the vehicle for a guaranteed residual value, trade up or simply walk away at the end of the term.
