LEVC - the London Electric Vehicle Company - has announced an enhancement for its TX taxi and VN5light van, with both vehicles benefitting from a larger and more efficient battery.

The 34.6 kWh unit upgrades LEVC's eCity powertrain, offering increased capacity and greater efficiency, with even lower CO2emissions for the TX and VN5.

With the new battery, the TX taxi now emits 14g/km of CO2- down from 19g/km - while the VN5 is rated at 17g/km which is down from 19g/km.

The TX's electric-only range is 78 miles which is up from 64 miles and its total range has been increased to 333 miles from 318 miles.

The VN5's electric-only range improves to 73 miles and 328 miles in total which is up from 318 miles.

LEVC has manufactured the TX - the world's most advanced electric taxi - at its groundbreaking facility in Coventry since 2017, as well as its electric VN5 van from 2019.

Since the first TX taxi was delivered in January 2018 in London, more than 8,500 vehicles have now been built for global markets.

Alex Nan, chief execurive of LEVC, saidd:"With thousands of our vehicles sold around the world, LEVC's eCity technology is the powertrain choice for the modern taxi driver. The updated battery further bolsters the already compelling business case for our customers, with significant benefits for drivers, owner operator, while helping to improve air quality in urban environments.

"Our award-winning TX continues to satisfy demand for clean and accessible mobility demands the world over. With new markets adopting the TX, we're proud to be making such a significant contribution to improving air quality in more than 20 markets."
