Chinese firm Geely will launch its own version of Taxi

Post by Aftab on Mon 12 Apr 2010 - 15:35

Chinese firm Geely will launch its own version of the London black cab at this month’s Beijing motor show.

Geely’s Englon TXN concept is a modern recreation of the classic TX4 black cab. The firm has released two low-quality renderings of it running through London’s streets, as well as interior pictures.



Geely is poised to take a controlling stake in the maker of the London black cab Manganese Bronze, and it recently shifted production from Coventry to China.

The cabs had been produced be Manganese’s subsidiary London Taxis International since 1948 and the production shift resulted in 60 job losses.

Full details of the Englon TXN will be revealed at the Beijing motor show, which starts on 23 April.

A quick Google brings about a realisation that this is not much of an innovation in design, look at this Rover of the sixties

That looks tiny and nothing like a five passenger carrying cab, unless we are going to drive three seater taxis now.

Just an update to the last post I made, the company designing the vehicle have said this is for the international market and doesn't comply with our regulations here in Britain. We knew that anyway Laughing
