Customers using the black taxi app Gett can now exclusively order an electric taxi in London.

The TX eCity London Taxi can be hailed via the Gett app

The launch of the Gett Electric service, said be an industry first, means passengers can ride emission-free in the new LEVC TX Electric, and follows other recent initiatives by Gett to mitigate the carbon emissions from their customers’ rides. This includes carbon reduction projects, and customers are also able to make their ride ‘carbon positive’ by paying an extra 20p per ride.

Gett is encouraging their drivers to obtain the TX Electric taxis through reduced commission schemes for cab drivers using the Gett app.

Matteo de Renzi, Gett’s UK CEO, said: “We are very proud that our proprietary technology uniquely enables us to offer our London customers the chance to order these excellent new electric taxis. With the alarming pollution levels in London, customers are increasingly looking for eco-friendly ways to travel. Gett are delighted to offer the Gett Electric vehicle option, providing completely emission-free rides.”

The Gett Electric class is currently available 10:00 to 20:00, Monday to Friday in Central London.
