Intelligent battery management
Our vehicles proactively help prolong the life of the battery by keeping it at the optimum temperature when the vehicle is in use or charging.
Severe ambient temperatures and extended periods under load can cause the battery cells to heat up, accelerating the aging process.
To combat this, over 40 separate electronic control units perform a variety of functions – including a cooling system dedicated to keeping the battery at exactly the right temperature.
Liquid Cooling System
Unlike other electric vehicles which rely upon passive Air Cooling Systems to manage the battery temperature, LEVC adopts an ultra-efficient Liquid Cooling System.
This active measure, widely adopted in high-end passenger EVs, circulates liquid refrigerant, not ambient air, to maintain the battery at a comfortable temperature; helping keep battery degradation to an absolute minimum. Think air conditioning vs standard ventilation while waiting in traffic on a hot summer day.
Recharge without worry
The same on-board control units also help protect the battery by reducing the risk of damage through overcharging. Once fully charged, the on-board systems prevent the battery from taking in more electricity than is needed.
During development engineers simulated charging the battery under different usage profiles, to ensure it always met the design objectives, regardless of how the vehicle is recharged.
Whether recharged slowly overnight or quickly using a rapid charger, in all cases the power available remained consistent, with no decline in performance.
Best in class suppliers
As part of a multinational group, we have privileged access to the world’s biggest and best automotive suppliers with the latest technology.
Our batteries are supplied by LG Chem, the world’s leading manufacturer of electric vehicle batteries, globally recognised for their performance and quality.
Durable & damage-resistant
A resilient metal casing around the battery protects it from being damaged by debris and impacts.
The cells of the battery are also arranged in three different strings, meaning that the vehicle can continue to function even in the unlikely event of battery damage.
Instant torque for a smooth, consistent drive
There’s no lag, no revving-up or shifting gears – just instant torque the moment you put down the pedal.
The performance delivered is always consistent and is not linked to the state of battery charge or petrol range extender operation – so you always have smooth, effortless acceleration even when fully loaded.
Further peace of mind
For even greater peace of mind, all vehicles are available to purchase on Personal Contract Purchase (PCP). This allows you to set an affordable monthly payment for up to five years, and gives you the option of returning the vehicle to us at the end of the term, taking absolutely no risk around the health of the battery or the residual value of the vehicle.

Compare running costs
By maximising the range offered driving on battery electrical energy drivers of our previous taxi can achieve a typical fuel saving of approx. £100/week. Compare the running costs of TX against those of your current taxi.
