About London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC)
LEVC’s history began in 1908 when the first dedicated black cab was specially designed and commissioned for use in London. With its unmistakable silhouette and classic design cues, this iconic British vehicle has defined the company for over a century. In 2018, LEVC introduced its latest taxi model, the electric TX – the world’s cleanest, most advanced taxi ever, powered by revolutionary eCity technology.
Building on unrivalled heritage producing purpose-built vehicles, the company’s new strategy will see it grow beyond manufacturers of the iconic London taxi into a high-volume, all-electric brand with a range of smarter, cleaner, safer and more accessible mobility solutions.
