Oxford LEVC Electric Taxi Black 76TX5001
1:76 version of the LEVC TX Electric Taxi, all ready to park outside the station on your modern London railway layout. It is presented in exactly the same detail as its larger counterpart, registered KF17 CNU, representing the first year of manufacture in the capital. It is decorated in the traditional black and carries the LEVC insignia in silver. The yellow and black TAXI light is situated above the front windscreen.
The real-life LEVC TX Electric Taxi is built by the London EV Company at their Coventry Works and is a plug-in hybrid designed to comply with London Transport’s regulations which came into force in 2017. This legislation bans all new taxis being diesel powered and institutes a zero-emission policy. It drives in full electric mode all the time with a range of 377 miles (607 km) and is recharged by an 81 hp Volvo 1.5 litre turbo-charged three-cylinder petrol engine. The charge connectors are mounted on either side of the radiator grille. For London’s LEVC Taxi passengers wanting to get a good view, the roof features a clear panoramic panel, also reproduced on our model. So, next time you are sitting in the real thing, just appreciate all the technology in this amazing vehicle!
