Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her 70th year on the throne, and UK-based carmakers have made special treats to mark the occasion. After McLaren unveiled a new paint and Jaguar Land Rover hosts a 26-car parade, it’s now LVC’s turn to present their “gift.” The makers of the famous London taxi have unveiled a trio of electric TX models with a platinum wrap that will take part in the celebrations.
The bespoke platinum packaging of the electric taxi seems to be quite reflective, although London is not famous for its sunlight. In addition to the glossy chrome-like treatment applied to TX’s entire bodywork, the model is in stock. So, one should not expect the extravagant layout of special LEVC TX models tuned by Sutton or Lorinsar, but at least there will be plenty of space for guests.

The three special LEVC TXs will not serve as taxis for the general public, as they are reserved for the VIPs to chauffeur in their seats before the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee pageant. The event will take place this Sunday, June 5, at the Mall in central London and will be televised worldwide. Thousands of performers from Commonwealth countries will take part in the show.
The LEVC TX, launched by Chinese automaker Geely in 2018, is available with full electric and range-extender plug-in hybrid powertrain options. In addition to the taxi variants running in various cities including London, Paris and Tokyo, the TX also comes in the taste of light commercial vehicles when the automaker also teased a camper van.
