Magical Taxi Tour takes 100 Children on the Trip of a Lifetime to Disneyland Paris

One of London’s most-loved children’s charity events, the Magical Taxi Tour started its annual journey to Paris on Friday. 

Organised by the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, the event kicked off in the morning with a special breakfast held at East Wintergarden, in Canary Wharf.

Following the breakfast, 93 taxis set off from the capital, taking 100 children and their families and carers to Disneyland Paris for a trip of a lifetime. 

The convoy was escorted by the City of London Police and the London Ambulance NHS Trust, with the French Gendarmerie Nationale picking up the route once the procession arrives in France.

Since its inception in 1994, the Magical Taxi Tour has taken more than 5,000 children to Disneyland Resort Paris®. The event is run purely on donations from organisations and as a sign of support for this important charity, Geely Holding Group, owner of the London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) has donated £100,000 over five years. Since 2013, LEVC has also donated £230,000 to the charity.

About LEVC

LEVC’s history began in 1908 when the first dedicated black cab was specially designed and commissioned for use in London. With its unmistakable silhouette and classic design cues, this iconic British vehicle has defined the company for over a century. In 2018, LEVC introduced its latest taxi model, the electric TX. TX is world’s cleanest, most advanced taxi ever, powered by LEVC’s revolutionary eCity technology.

LEVC manufactures its purpose-built, range extended electric TX taxi at a state-of-the-art factory in Ansty, Coventry. Since 2014, Geely has invested more than £500m into LEVC, allowing it to build an entirely new eco-friendly manufacturing facility, the UK’s first dedicated to the production of electric vehicles.

In November 2019, LEVC started production of its first non-taxi model with the launch of VN5, a medium-sized electric van. Utilising the same eCity technology as TX, VN5 offers both zero-emission capability and zero range anxiety, a critical combination for commercial vehicle operators.
