I am delighted that Geely has successfully secured the future of the London Taxi Company, ensuring the continuing manufacture of a world famous, fully accessible and instantly recognisable vehicle synonymous with London. London's cabbies can now look to the future safe in the knowledge that the TX model taxi will continue to serve Londoners for many years to come and I look forward to hearing Geely's proposals for producing an ultra low emission taxi to serve London in the near future._
