ELECTRI-CITY CAB

Torque (Singapore) - - NEWS -

Bri­tain’s iconic Lon­don Taxi has been trans­formed into an elec­tric taxi­cab called TX. Built by a UK-based sub­sidiary of Chi­nese au­to­mo­tive gi­ant Geely, the new-age Lon­don black cab has a de­light­fully retro de­sign, rear-hinged pas­sen­ger doors that open to 90 de­grees for eas­ier en­try/exit, a re­tractable in­te­grated ramp for wheel­chair users and cabin space for up to six fares. With its range-ex­tend­ing gen­er­a­tor, the TX taxi is the­o­ret­i­cally able to ply 640 kilo­me­tres of city streets be­fore it runs out of juice.
