LONDON: The city of London is doing a lot of work to improve the quality of its air. Perhaps more US cities could pay attention to what the English capital is doing instead of incessant fruitless political debates that go nowhere?
It’s hard to get away from the fruitless political talks that have taken over our country to our detriment. Our politicians are pretty good when it comes to speeches, while cities around the world have been furiously on the move.
One such city is London. The English capital has been putting its money where its mouth is with a few noteworthy concepts. We talked about a no-brainer trialed by UPS there, a battery-powered mobile cargo unit that can be maneuvered with a bicycle or by walking with it. The city has also decided to keep its iconic London taxis but bring them into the 21st century with an electric drivetrain.
Welcome the TX eCity London Taxi from the London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC), part of the Geely group. These electric taxis are being slowly introduced on the streets of the city. Has anyone taken a ride yet? We’d love to hear from you.
