The London Taxi Company has inaugurated a new vehicle plant in Ansty, near Coventry. It will be the UK’s first dedicated electric vehicle manufacturing facility. LTC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Geely (who also own Volvo), has invested more than £300m in the new site and the next-generation London taxi, which will be produced at the plant and exported around the world.
