We’ve explained how the electric motor in TX will help you save money on fuel, but did you know the electric motor can put more in your wallet through reduced servicing requirements and downtime?
TX has been developed to help driver’s maximum business potential by minimising time off the road needed for regular maintenance work. Thanks to the electric motor working together with the range-extender, the routine maintenance costs of the Electric Taxi are significantly lower than that of a traditional internal-combustion engine vehicle.
So much so, you can expect to spend approximately half as much on servicing because we have extended the recommended service intervals to 25,000 miles rather than the 15,000 miles recommended for our current models.
What’s more, anyone who attends a private preview and puts a deposit down can take advantage of our pre-launch offer which gives you the first three years or 100K miles servicing for FREE!
Technology that helps you save
The intuitive drive modes of TX work seamlessly to not only manage the energy sources, but also help extend the lifespan of the taxi by making individual components last longer. Here are just a few ways which TX helps reduce servicing and maintenance costs.
The battery and electric motor which propel TX require little to no regular maintenance since there are fewer fluids to change and fewer serviceable parts. Because the electric motor drives the taxi, there is no traditional gearbox to inspect or maintain. The range-extender will require maintenance similar to conventional vehicles, however because the battery powers the vehicle on its own most of the time, the range-extender only operates when needed – meaning there is less mechanical wear on those components. Even the regenerative braking system plays a part in reducing maintenance costs. Not only does it improve the electric range, but it also reduces the wear on the brake pads and brakes extending their lifespan.
Where and how to book a service
We are currently in the process of appointing a nationwide network to support TX and provide service and maintenance in areas necessary. Technician training and capability forms a key part of the appointment requirement. The LEVC approved service network are provided with the necessary training, tools and technical documentation to ensure a professional and efficient service, with a quick turnaround and minimal downtime.
On the occasions when work is required, we will be offering drivers a three-click online service which allows them to book a scheduled service at their nearest dealer with just their vehicle registration and a few clicks of the mouse.
