Built to Last
The new TX has undergone the most extensive testing and development programme we’ve ever undertaken; in fact, the TX has completed more test mileage than all of our previous models put together.
As part of a multinational group, we have privileged access to the world’s biggest and best automotive suppliers with the latest technology; and we’ve gone to great lengths in selecting each partner for their unique attributes to ensure all elements of TX are built to last the life of the taxi – this includes the drive battery.
Tried, Tested and Proven
Our battery supplier, LG Chem are the world’s number one manufacturer of electric vehicle batteries and recognised globally for their performance and quality. The lithium-ion drive battery in TX has been extensively tested over millions of miles, and in the most extreme terrains to ensure reliability and longevity no matter the environment or usage.
Whether recharged slowly overnight or getting a full top up using a rapid-charger every 8 hours, in all cases the power available remained consistent, with no decline in performance – offering full confidence regardless of whether you plan to charge at home or on the street. In our most extreme usage tests, the battery was repeatedly rapid-charged for 9,000 full cycles before the full charge reduced 25% of its original capacity.
Thanks to the revolutionary eCity technology, an unused battery doesn’t lose voltage because the battery is always passing charge so the voltage is always maintained. In fact, the taxi would need to be left unattended for over a year before this posed a significant problem.
What’s more, a resilient metal casing around the battery protects it from being damaged by debris and impacts, as well as lifting or jacking by would-be thieves. The cells of the battery are arranged in three different “strings”, meaning that it can continue to function even in the unlikely event of it being damaged.
Peace of Mind
Our battery is not leased but comes included with the taxi, meaning there are no additional lease costs to factor in to your monthly budget and you won’t be tied to a lease contract. We’re confident that it will last as long as the taxi does and to showcase the quality of the technology we’re offering a full five-year unlimited mileage battery warranty which is industry leading for any commercial electric vehicle.
We’re also able to offer the opportunity to purchase a new TX on Personal Contract Purchase (PCP). PCP allows customers to set an affordable monthly payment, starting from just £177 per week, for up to five years, during which time the battery is comprehensively covered by the warranty. At the end of the term customers can simply hand the taxi back to us; taking absolutely no risks around the health of the battery or the residual value of the vehicle. However, should they wish to purchase the taxi outright at this point, that option remains available too.
