The London Electric Vehicle Company – better known as LEVC – has built its 10,000th vehicle at its Ansty facility in Coventry.
The manufacturing plant produces the iconic black TX electric taxi, as well as the VN5 van.
LEVC has manufactured the TX – the world’s most advanced electric taxi – since 2017, and the TX has been sold globally from Paris to Madrid and Cairo to Tokyo.
The milestone follows LEVC’s recent announcement of a new strategy that will see it grow beyond manufacturing the TX, to become a leading zero-carbon mobility technology company.
It also continues the momentum of a record-breaking year in 2022, with 2,508 TX vehicles sold, making it LEVC’s best annual sales performance to date.
Growing demand for the company’s smart, green, safe and accessible mobility solutions, means that the TX electric taxi has now overtaken the diesel-powered TX4, as the most common black cab operating in London.
Representing more than 40% of all black cabs in London, there are over 6,000 TXs on the streets of the capital.
As well as reaching the significant milestone of 10,000 vehicles, this year also marks the 200th anniversary since the first Hackney carriage was licensed in London, and 75 years since the first iconic “black cab” was born – in the form of the FX3.
