Electric Taxi Comes To London
The iconic TX4 (London Black Cab)Â taxis thatÂ fly up and down the streets of London are going to be getting an overhaul.
In the interest of reducing costs, improving air quality, and replacing the aging fleet, theyâ€™ll be introducing new TX4 E electric taxi starting in early 2009.
I can only imagine the death-toll on London’s streets as Taxis get ‘silent mode’….GULP! 😮
Pricing hasnâ€™t been settled as yet but these new taxis will running on LiFePO4 batteries by the sounds of things.
This means that theÂ fuelÂ costÂ will be around 3p per mile -Â but still budget toÂ pay a quid a minute before midnight and/or crossing the river………
