Home charging

The easiest and cheapest way to charge TX is at home

To facilitate charging at home we've partnered with industry leading suppliers BP Chargermaster in England and EO Charging in Scotland who will provide a reliable, affordable one stop solution for owners. Through these partnerships a 7kW 'SMart' home charger wall box will cost just £359 in England and £59 in Scotland.

With the Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) requirements for 'Smart' home, owners have the added benefit of being able to schedule charging events and take advantage of off-peak energy tariffs.

Charging overnight at the national average electricity price of 12p per kW, a full charge would cost around £3. However, if you take advantage of overnight off-peak energy tariffs the cost to charge can be significantly cheaper.

On-street charging

22kW - 11kW fast on-street charging, ideal for topping up the battery during the day

Drivers can recharge 60% of the battery during a quick 45 minutes lunch break - that's the equivalent of 50 miles electric range.

Unlike other electric vehicles, the dual on-board inverter chargers in TX allow drivers to harness the full charging rate available - meaning the taxi can use all of the available current to recharge the battery quicker.

There are more than 7,000+ Public Fast connectors available in the UK and it is expected that 22kW charging will be the ‘minimum standard’ globally for future electric vehicle infrastructure.

Take full advantage of the on-street charging infrastructure

There are currently about 11,000 charging points in the UK, with more being installed daily and we are working with local authorities and government regulators to install dedicated taxi infrastructure - with Transport for London promising to install 300 dedicated taxi charge points by the end of 2019.

To ensure drivers are able to take maximum benefit from the available charging infrastructure, the electric taxi has been built to offer unrivaled charging flexibility. So drivers can top up from virtually any public charge point, whether it be slow (<7kW), fast (<22kW) or rapid (50kW) TX has the charging capabilities via different socket types.

Discover where your nearest charge points are

We've partnered with Zap-Map to make it easier for you to locate the nearest charge points to you or on your typical journey - helping you maximise the savings available from driving on electric power.

Our interactive map, viewable in a web browser or using an iOS or Android app, lets you navigate the public EV charge network, view connector type, charging speeds, comments from other users, and even get a live status update on individual charge points.
