ENDEAVOUR AUTOMOTIVE LAUNCHES ELECTRIC TAXIS

Endeavour Automotive announced that it will also be operating an electric taxi franchise.

Endeavour Automotive have operated a number of Volvo dealerships in and around London since 2014 and from the start of August will also be selling LEVC’s TX from Chiswick

With the TX, LEVC has completely redesigned the taxi, it offers passengers a premium experience in an electrically driven vehicle. On-board wi-fi, phone and laptop charging are all included, effectively making the new taxi a mobile office for passengers. In addition, the more spacious space includes six seats and wheelchair accessibility.

Endeavour Automotive decided to become a franchise holder after seeing the popularity of the new taxi with passengers and drivers, as well as the level of support from both national and city government for the electric taxi project. The team have invested to increase the capacity of their workshop to support the arrival of a new brand.

The firm is also building a number of taxi dedicated fast charge points to give cabbies greater access to charging in West London. These will supplement the 52 dedicated rapid chargers which are set aside for taxi use in London.
