Already a very familiar site in London, the TX is the London Electric Vehicle Company's revolutionary Range-Extender taxi. Offering trade drivers a spacious and versatile interior with a silky smooth ride, it's proved popular from launch. The longest electric range for any REx/PHEV on the market and 50kW CCS DC charging means its electric credentials are pretty sound, even if it carries the petrol generator back up for those occasional long fares.

Charging Details

Charging time for a LEVC TX

The table below shows the estimated time to charge your TX from empty to full. For rapid charging, we show the time to charge from 20% - 80%, as charging tends to slow outside this range to protect the battery.

* Based on EV Made Easy estimates, charging time can differ based on the ambient temperature, the state of the battery (e.g. empty or half full) and variation in charging rate. Max charging rate may also be limited by the vehicle.
** Range per hour is the number of miles you can expect to get from an hour of charging at the relevant rate.

* This metric estimates the environmental impact of driving your electric vehicle based on how the electricity that powers your car is generated. We take the average carbon intensity across the UK grid measured throughout 2021 to calculate the expected grams of CO2 emitted per 1 km driven. The actual number will vary by region, when you charge (e.g. carbon intensity is usually lower overnight period) and whether your electricity comes from more renewable sources than the average.
