London Taxi company announces new strategy towards green mobility
LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company), the makers of the popular London taxis, has announced new business strategies for the coming decade and beyond, to become a leading zero-carbon mobility technology company.
Building on unrivalled heritage in purpose-built vehicles, LEVC has manufactured the iconic London taxi for more than 70 years. The company's new strategy will see it grow beyond manufacturing the world's most advanced taxi, the TX.
LEVC has affirmed its commitment to deliver smart and green mobility solutions to more people than ever before. The company has made some managerial changes in its order in pursuit of the new strategies.
Alex Nan, CEO of LEVC, commented, "LEVC now enters the next exciting stage with our new brand strategy, which will see us become a leading zero carbon mobility technology company".
Since the launch of the TX in 2018, LEVC has experienced rapid growth, with 9,000 global sales to date, those vehicles travelling more than 500 million miles and preventing 152,000 tonnes of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere, the CEO noted.
In London, LEVC's TX accounts for 82 percent of the taxi market, and there are now more TX's on the streets than diesel TX4s. LEVC looks forward to continuing to help the capital to accelerate the transition to a clean, green EV black cab fleet, he added.
Nan further said, "Going forward, our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant at Ansty, Coventry, will continue to be the home of the famous, iconic TX taxi – the London black cab and new generation models. We will build on LEVC's unrivalled heritage and grow beyond high-end taxi manufacturing, delivering smart, green, safe and accessible mobility to more customers than ever before".
