LEVC Manchester located at St Mary’s Way in Stockport is the new home of the world’s most advanced electric taxi, the LEVC TX.
Operated by Head of Business, Boyd Dennell says this new flagship dealer will provide Sales and Aftersales support to taxi drivers operating anywhere in Greater Manchester.
As part of the launch, there will be a two-day event on 5-6 June where taxi drivers can learn about the benefits of TX and the potential money they could save by making the switch to electric. LEVC estimate that drivers should save up to £110 per week in fuel savings alone. Further savings can be had by taking advantage of LEVC Manchester’s launch offer which gives drivers £1,149 worth of extras, including: 5yr extended warranty, vinyl pack, upgraded paint and 2 free services.
Mr Ahmad, who was the first taxi driver to purchase a TX in Manchester said: “I’m absolutely delighted to have the first electric black cab in Manchester. I can't wait to see the response from passengers, I know that they're going to love it.”
For passengers, there are a whole host of new features, including: WIFI, USB and laptop charging, a large panoramic roof, six seats and of course, the class leading accessibility features synonymous with the black cab.
TX also provides a much smoother and more comfortable ride for the driver too and has a whole host of features such as lane assist, autonomous braking, parking sensors and a rear camera, all of which are designed to make driving easier.
The appointment of LEVC Manchester comes at a crucial time as the GMCA consider plans to introduce a clean air zone across all 10 local authorities by 2021. Under current plans, vans and taxis are set to be charged £7.50 per day when operating within the clean air zone.
In addition to this, the LEVC Manchester dealership has potential to make a huge impact on air quality within Greater Manchester as more TX taxis are sold. With 32 million trips made using taxis and private hire vehicles in Greater Manchester each year, the electrification of this fleet could drastically help to cut emissions.
