Fulham Cab Company is increasing its number of LEVC (London EV Company) TX vehicles on its fleet by over 70% following strong driver demand for electric taxis – with electric taxis now outnumbering diesels at the firm.
Having taken delivery of its first TX in March 2018, Fulham Cab Company has ordered a further 30 TXs to add to its current fleet of 41 TXs. As a result, Fulham Cab Company’s electric fleet is the largest in London and the largest TX fleet in the UK, with a total of 71 zero-emission capable vehicles.
Having operated for over 12 years, Fulham Cab Company has seen demands from drivers change recently and many new converts to the TX and electric vehicles generally.
Initially attracted by the reduced maintenance and improved passenger experience, increased demand from drivers to make the switch to EV has been a major factor in the firm’s decision to invest in further TXs. Following this recent order, electric taxis will now outnumber diesel taxis on its fleet for the first time.
John Flynn, owner of Fulham Cab Company, commented “The response from drivers and passengers to the TXs has been unanimously positive, and I’ve seen a large increase in the number of drivers looking to rent an electric taxi. With the increased amount of TXs on the road, they are fast becoming the go-to choice for those looking to start a new rental and I’m excited to add a further 30 to my fleet.”
Commenting on the deal, Martin Crouch, the General Manager at LEVC’s flagship London dealership on Brewery Road, said “The customer service, aftersales experience and account management provided by the team here has played a significant role in supporting John through the transition to electric TXs, helping him to become not only the largest TX fleet in London but the largest in the UK. We’re very proud to be working with John and wish him all the success.”
