LEVC’s iconic electric black cab has saved approximately 54.9 MILLION litres of fossil fuel consumption since its launch in 2018.


Green minded cabbies driving the LEVC TX taxi have also reduced approximately 90,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere in the UK say LEVC’s parent company Geely.

Despite a difficult couple of years in the industry faced by drivers, due mainly to social restrictions imposed over the coronavirus pandemic, cabbies have invested over £300million to bring more environmentally friendly cabs onto the roads.


LEVC recently celebrated 7,000 global sales of the electric TX taxi and these cabs now make up more than a third of those operating in London.


Since launching in 2018, the TX has provided sustainable transport to both owners and passengers in more than 20 countries worldwide, from Paris to Cairo and Madrid to Tokyo. Over the last four years, the TX has travelled more than 418 million miles and prevented 127 million tonnes of CO2 being emitted into the atmosphere.

LEVC’s TX is an accessible and inclusive vehicle for all, regardless of age, gender or disability. Featuring flexible space for up to six passengers, the vehicle includes an integrated wheelchair ramp and a swivel seat, enabling the TX to accommodate a forward-facing wheelchair – the only taxi of its kind to do so. The TX’s eCity technology provides a pure EV range of more than 64 miles (103 km) and a total range-extended capacity of 318 miles (512 km).


Parent company Geely has invested more than £500million in LEVC, creating a state-of-the-art R&D centre and factory in Ansty, Coventry, where all the TXs are built.
