LONDON -- London's black-cab maker could strike a deal soon on the second overseas market after Amsterdam for its new electric taxi, the boss of the Chinese Geely-owned firm said.
The London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) picked Amsterdam earlier this year as its first foreign destination, where around 225 vehicles will be used as part of a service which transports the elderly and disabled.
CEO Chris Gubbey said the company was hoping to conclude talks with a second mainland European location soon, potentially by the end of the year.
"Quite soon hopefully there will be an announcement on the second one after Amsterdam. We're getting very close now," he said.
LEVC is undergoing a major expansion plan which will see it sell about 10,000 vehicles abroad by the turn of the decade, including a new van.
