The record-breaking latest incarnation of the famous London taxi will take pride of place at a trade show in the city where it is made. LTI Vehicles, manufacturer of the TX4 taxi, will be among the exhibitors at Taxi Expo, on May 15 and 16 at the Ricoh Arena, in Coventry.


The firm’s base is just a couple of miles across town and bosses are proudly looking forward to showcasing their latest model – still instantly recognisable as a London-style cab but with a host of refinements over previous models.

As well as having two TX4 models on the stand at the show for visitors to look around, a further cab will be laid on to whisk delegates across town to the Holyhead Road headquarters of LTI Vehicles for a factory tour.

Matthew Cheyne, Sales and Marketing Director with LTI Vehicles, said: “We are very proud of the motor manufacturing heritage in Coventry and are delighted that this taxi trade showcase is being held here in our home city.

“Since its launch last October, the TX4 has broken all sales records. We will have two models at the show for those who have not seen it to come and have a look and see what all the fuss is about.

“After the success of our factory tours last year, we will again be running trips from the Ricoh Arena to our factory to show interested drivers how the vehicles are made.

”We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to the event.”

It is the second year the Ricoh Arena has hosted the event.

The TX4 features anti-lock brakes as standard and a new Euro IV-compliant VM engine. It also has a new suspension system and further refinements inside to improve passenger and driver comfort and safety.
