May 29, 2008 underscored the 60th anniversary of London taxi for its successful taxi manufacturing for six decades now. The celebration began yesterday at the Private Hire and Taxi exhibition, held at The Ricoh Arena, Coventry.
According to reports, the well-experienced company has obtained an enormous deal since 1948, since the time when the very-first London taxi has gone to the Coventry plant. Other LTI highlights during that time include the creation of the Frisbee and the launching of the World Health Organisation by the United Nations. After that period, the automotive firm has distinguished over 100,000 taxis roll off the production line which includes the FX, Fairway and TX series. The group had a good time in front of presentation guests alongside the media with the traditional cutting of a personally baked cake to commemorate the remarkable occasion.
These vehicles can be spotted operating on the streets of London at present, in several towns and cities in Britain, and some can be seen around the world. Today?s talk of the town model from LTI is the TX4 taxi which is the most recent version of the legendary vehicle. The TX4 along with its great auto parts, has received vast positive response from its rising customer list.
LTI Vehicles is generally acknowledged for developing one of the world?s most legendary vehicles. The company is dedicated to constantly develop on their taxis to provide drivers and passengers a taxi service with stunning car parts that is highly desirable for others.
?As we celebrate this important milestone we are able to celebrate the past and look forward to the future. From the launch of the FX3 back in 1948 to the present day, LTI Vehicles has seen many changes in the development of its purpose-built taxis to meet the needs of the professional taxi driver,? says John Russell, CEO, Manganese Bronze Holdings PLC, LTI Vehicles? parent company.
?This is an important year in the history of LTI Vehicles. The agreement with Chinese auto manufacturer Geely is progressing nicely with the finishing touches being applied to the facility near Shanghai. The development of electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles also shows our commitment to improve our environmental credentials and gain a competitive advantage in an expanding global marketplace. All this makes for an exciting future both at home and abroad.?
?We look forward to continuing this success to ensure that the next 60 years are as successful as the company?s first,? he added.
