Chinese firm Geely has launched its own version of the London black cab at the 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.
