LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company), manufacturers of the iconic black cab, are continuing their support for taxi drivers across the UK as they return to work and help keep their passengers safe.

As a protective and safe form of transport, cabbies are working hard to make a black cab passenger environment as clean, hygienic and comfortable as possible.

Following the high demand of the 2,000 ‘Back to Work’ kits launched in June, a further 1,500 kits have been produced and are available free of charge to all black cab drivers from LEVC’s authorised sales points.

Each kit provides protective PPE and cleaning equipment, designed to keep occupants safe and vehicles clean. Each kit includes sanitising gel, antiviral disinfectant spray, disposable face masks, microfibre reusable cloths and anti-bacterial taxi-receipts.

Since 1908, all black cabs have been fitted with a purpose-built protection screen which separates the driver and passenger compartments. This iconic feature not only provides protective strength and durability but is also an excellent air flow barrier between compartments.

LEVC has released a short film to show its effectiveness in separating air mass, reassuring passengers of the benefits of the taxi’s highly protective environment.

To go one step further, LEVC has recently engineered a new accessory, a Driver Protection Screen Seal, which blocks any small airway gaps in the partition screen and closes the payment window. With the additional Driver Protection Screen Seal in place, airflow is reduced further with virtually no leakage between the driver and passenger cabin, providing even greater protection from airborne droplet transfer.

This accessory has proved extremely popular, with more than 1,550 fitted to TX taxis so far and more being added on a weekly basis. From 17 August, a new version will be available from all LEVC dealers to fit TX4 models. All Driver Protection Screen Seal kits are being provided to taxi drivers free of charge and on a first come first served basis.
