London’s black cab is a globally recognised icon and has lined the streets of our capital for decades, with the most recent model remaining largely unchanged for almost 20 years, until now. Our Revolve engineering team have just completed the prototype build of the recently launched hybrid London Taxi for 2017. Awarded in 2014 by the TX-5 project design team, the build features a super-efficient hybrid powertrain manufactured at Revolve HQ in Essex. This programme gives Revolve the ideal platform to expand its role as a leading Low Carbon Technologies integrator in the automotive sector.
Paul Turner, Technical Director for Low Carbon Technologies at Revolve, said:
“We’re delighted to be part of the London Taxi Company led APC consortium, and we’re looking forward to our role in developing innovative UK suppliers to be part of LTC’s low carbon vehicle programme. This project gives Revolve the ideal platform to expand its role as a s leading low carbon technologies integrator in the automotive sector.”
