Having undergone extensive testing including wintry conditions, the upcoming electric London Taxi is due to make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The new range-extender electric vehicle is set to be driven by 17-year-old Katie Milner, who competes in the Ginetta one-make championship. Milner will be the youngest female driver at the event when she takes to the wheel of the London cab at Goodwood, which will also mark the EV’s first public appearance.

As par for the course at Goodwood, the London Taxi Company will also have its latest product on display on the showgrounds, where it will be sharing space with other exotica. Unlike its knee-high Goodwood neighbours, the TX5 will have wheelchair access, face-to-face seating for six, and a small turning circle – crucial traits for what will predominantly be a city dweller.

The TX5 employs a Volvo-sourced three-cylinder petrol engine which operates as a generator for the vehicle’s battery pack, and is said to have an all-electric range of 112 km – this is to ensure the TX5 complies with new London regulations effective January 1, 2018 which require the new London cabs to have an electric range of at least 48 km.
