CEO, The Lon­don Elec­tric Ve­hi­cle Com­pany

Auto Express - - The Brit List 2018 -

FOR years Lon­don’s black cabs have been half-na­tional icon, half-laugh­ing stock. But with help from Chi­nese owner Geely, and un­der Chris Gubbey, The Lon­don Elec­tric Ve­hi­cle Com­pany (re­branded from the Lon­don Taxi Com­pany) last sum­mer got its range-ex­ten­der hy­brid cabs on to the cap­i­tal’s streets. Gubbey has more than 35 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence at Ford, GM and Toy­ota, and is now look­ing at fur­ther com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion of the TX5’S plat­form and tech. That could in­volve global ex­ports and mov­ing into com­mer­cial ve­hi­cles.
