Black cab maker to produce hybrid van

8th June 2018

The new London Electric Vehicle Company van

The manufacturer behind London’s iconic black cabs has unveiled a plug-in hybrid van.

The London Electric Vehicle Company, formerly The London Taxi Company, intends the as-yet-unnamed model to compete with one-tonne, medium-sized diesel vans that undertake around 100 miles a day.

It will use a battery electric setup with a 1.5-litre petrol generator and will be built at the firm’s factory in Warwickshire.

Further details on the van are expected to be announced later this year.
