this is really nice. Does anybody know if Geely will import this vehicle in Europe? and which retailer network will the importer use?

I don't know if LTI taxis are sold in other European countries, but it would be simpler just to bring them over from the UK.

Those two phillips head screws exposed on the face of the dash reminds me of a bride wearing combat boots on her wedding night.

And what about that accelerator pedal.....isn't it a bit primitive?

Chinese made London Cab launched on June, 8th.

The Chinese made TX4 taxi cab was launched today, aiming itself squarely at the ‘business car‘ sector, and perhaps even at the taxi market.

The TX4 will be sold to cabbies, and regular folks alike via Geely dealerships across China starting from today. The TX4, now being sold under the ‘Englon’ brand, will be sold for 200,800rmb and 220,800rmb depending on specification.

The models being offered are a 2.4 gasoline manual model (200,800rmb), a 2.5l diesel manual model (210,800rmb), and the top of the line 2.5 diesel automatic model (220,800rmb).

We’re unsure if cabbies will leave their Santana’s in droves to pick up the TX4, the high pricing is nearly two and a half times what a Santana costs, but on other hand you have a novelty vehicle. Taxi drivers are leaning towards the larger Passat in some cities, but even the 2.0l Passat is cheaper than the TX4.

The TX4 is being built in Shanghai via a JV between London LTI, and Geely.
