Passive & Active Driver Assistance Technology

Protecting you, your vehicle, your passengers, & even other road users

Our electric vehicles have been designed to help make driving on busy city streets safer & easier

New TX electric taxi lane assist

Keeping you on the right path

Sensors mounted in the windscreen watch the road markings ahead and should the vehicle begin to drift out of its lane without indicating, the driver is alerted to avoid a possible collision.

Helping to prevent a collision with obstacles in front of you

The same suite of sensors identify potential dangers on the road ahead. If a collision risk is identified the Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system alerts you with an audible warning and message on the display console.

If no action is taken and the potential collision is likely, the Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system applies the brakes automatically to prevent impact.

The AEB system not only reacts to solid objects like other vehicles, but can also spot vulnerable road users like pedestrians or cyclists.

Taking the stress out of parking

Available as standard, rear parking sensors emit an audible and visual warnings to alert you when reversing if an object is too close. If no response is taken, again autonomous braking is applied to prevent impact.

An extra pair of eyes when reversing

An optional high-definition colour reversing camera shows what’s behind you on a screen built into the centre console helping avoid objects while maneuvering backwards.

Giving you greater control of your vehicle

TX & VN5 feature the full complement of stability and braking systems expected of a modern vehicle, including electronic stability control (ESC), anti-lock braking (ABS), and emergency brake assist (EBA).

ESC – brakes individual wheels independently to correct a skid and keep the vehicle moving in the intended direction.

ABS – prevents loss of control by applying the maximum braking effort available, without locking the wheel and skidding.

EBA – recognises an emergency situation and automatically amplifies the driver’s input to generate maximum braking force.

Advanced split-second airbags

Drivers are protected by a large 60-litre front airbag to cushion the head and chest, as well as a 15-litre side airbag that works in conjunction with the curtain airbag to protect in the event of a frontal or side impact.

Two full-length curtain airbags that span the passenger compartment to protect passengers’ head and upper torso.

All airbags can fully inflate in just 30 milliseconds, 1/10 of the time it takes to blink.

Help on hills

Hill Start Assist system makes hill starts easy by automatically applying the brakes when you stop on a hill. As you operate the accelerator, the brakes will release and you’ll pull away smoothly.

TX Electric Taxi Seating Safety

Seats that provide extra protection

All seats feature reverse-wound, three-point seatbelts and energy-absorbing headrests to reduce the chance and severity of whiplash related injuries.

Forward-facing seats feature load limiters which prevent unsafe forces being applied to the body should a collision occur, while a pre-tensioning system holds the occupant more securely.

A visual seatbelt reminder prompts the driver to stay safe, and the collapsible steering column and brake pedal disconnect system provide further protection for drivers.

Automatic headlamp level adjustment

The automatic headlamp level will assist in ensuring the driver has full visibility of the road at all times. A self-levelling system keeps the headlights aimed down at the road, no matter the position of the vehicle and like every aspect of TX & VN5, the ultra-bright low energy LED lights have been built to last the life of the vehicle.

Road Sign Recognition

This allows you to view the important information and instructions shown on road signs through the driver’s instrument panel, enhancing awareness by making it easier to stay informed of current regulations and warnings. When activated, road sign recognition also updates the speed limiter (if in use) accordingly.

Focus on the road instead of the speedometer

Cruise control allows the current speed to be effortlessly maintained, while the speed limiter function prevents the taxi from accidentally exceeding the pre-set speed.

A warning when your tyres get low

It’s always important to keep your tyres at the correct pressure, to help you save fuel, preserve your tyres and help keep you safe. A direct tyre pressure monitoring system warns drivers of a drop in pressure.
