Our SDG Action

Drivers of TX The Electric Taxi, tell the world how you're helping to progress Goal 11

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland London, UK
Number of people taking this action: 250 or more
As our cities expand and become more congested, so the need for on-demand personal mobility increases - along with concerns over the health impacts from air pollution. Helping to progress Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 11, our newest taxi - TX - utilises a fully electric powertrain with the flexibility of a petrol range-extender, lightweight aluminium architecture, and the latest passenger and driver innovations.  On September 25th we encourage all drivers of TX #TheElectricTaxi to take individual action and raise awareness of the part they play in progressing SDG Goal 11. By driving TX, London taxi drivers provide access to safe, accessible and sustainable transport for all - with special attention to the needs of those in vulnerable situations, women, children, persons with disabilities and older persons; while also helping to reduce the adverse environmental impact to cities.

About LEVC

Our history is one of dedication to the professional taxi trade. As Mann & Overton we introduced steel bodied, purpose-built cabs and diesel engines to combine an enhanced passenger experience with rugged dependability. As LTI, we met the challenges of new safety and accessibility legislation to open up new opportunities for drivers. And as the London Taxi Company, we helped the trade rise to meet the needs of 21st Century cities.

Now with a renewed responsibility to the environment, we are London EV Company (LEVC). Still the leading global manufacturer and retailer of purpose-built taxis, our electrically-driven black cabs are capable of meeting the strictest emission standards in the world.
