Black Cabs Premier New Electric Taxis on London Roads

 

 

Black cabs electric taxis have finally hit London roads. The taxis are considered the cleanest and most innovative taxis in the world.

It is projected that by 2021, nine thousand electric taxis will be on London roads according to plans aimed at improving the air quality in the capital.

Chris Gubbey, CEO of LEVC —the electric black cab manufacturer, said: “After extensive testing, LEVC’s new taxi is ready to do the job it was made for: transport people around this great city of London safely, cleanly and stylishly.”

He further said, “Everything is new. It has an all-aluminum body and electric engine with range extender. But most importantly, it’s bringing clean air to London.”

The taxis are also built for comfort as they comes with a panoramic roof, contactless card machine, air conditioning, power sockets for phones and laptops, WIFI, and wheelchair accessibility.  

The premier comes weeks before the effecting of new rules requiring zero emissions from new cabs looking to operate in the London market.
