The London Taxi Company is set to celebrate the life of its iconic TX4 taxi at The London Motor Show 2017 before bidding it farewell. The revolutionary new rang extended electric cab will replace the TX4 at the end of the year, and London Taxi Company will be pulling out all the stops to honour its legendary existing model
London Taxi Company is preparing to give its iconic TX4 black cab the ultimate send-off at The London Motor Show.
The TX4 has spent 10 years as the world’s No. 1 taxi of choice and has been exported to over 40 countries around the globe, including Australia, China, France, Germany, Italy and New Zealand.
But London is the cab’s spiritual home, and it will be returning to its roots at Battersea Park from 4-7 May for one final hurrah. As the TX4 is being replaced by a new range extended electric taxi at the end of 2017, London Taxi Company is inviting show-goers to say goodbye to the legend by sharing their taxi stories.
A giant “leaving card” will be displayed at the London Taxi Company stand, which guests can sign with their favourite taxi tales and best memories of their time spent with the cab.
The model on show will be a Limited Edition TX4, which is one of the last 300 ever to roll off the production line. Like all new TX4s, it will come with a Euro 6 engine which delivers an 83% reduction in nitrogen oxides when compared with older models.
The TX4 is also estimated to have appeared in over 5,000 movies and TV shows, including the likes of James Bond films, Doctor Who and Sherlock Holmes, and many of its impressive feats will be honoured at The London Motor Show.
The TX4 will join a long list of exhibits in Battersea Park, where over 130 brand new cars will go on display to the tens of thousands of spectators passing through the gates.
Alec Mumford, Chairman of The London Motor Show, said: “Welcoming a true London icon to our show in the capital is incredibly fitting and we’re very excited to play a big part in paying tribute to a legend. We all have memories of being in a TX4 cab and it’ll be very interesting to see what our guests write in the London Taxi Company leaving card. London automotive stalwarts don’t come much bigger than The London Motor Show and the TX4 taxi, and the union is sure to be very special.”
