The London Taxi Company, LTI Ltd, was a UK taxi company headquartered in Coventry, UK. Previously it operated under the name London Taxis International and was formerly Carbodies Ltd. This company was held by the Manganese Bronze Holdings until they went into liquidation in 2013.
Carbon Body had a body shop that operates from Holyhead Road in Coventry. Half a Century later, manufacturing small batches of equipment with restricted demands for large producers, it was forced to substitute these now closed down operations, and in 1971 it took from its former taxi frame client and contractor, Austin, the production of full London taxis.
Carbodies were purchased two years later by Manganese Bronze Holdings. Carbodies Limited was renamed LTI Limited in 1992. The LTI Limited used the trade name London Taxis International (renamed The London Taxi Company in 2010) for its deal, despite the fact that some exporting countries collapsed during 2010.
1 ] The LTI Ltd property was purchased by Geely to form the present London EV Company. Instead of producing tailor-made bodywork according to custom sketches, Carbodies started to manufacture bodywork according to a series of standardized sketches for automobile firms that did not have their own bodywork equipment.
In 1928 they relocated to a bigger location on Holyhead Road, where they still stay today. The scope of a new agreement on the construction of car bodyshells for the MG M-Type Midget implied that they needed bigger facilities, and in 1928 they relocated to a bigger location on Holyhead Road, where they still are. During the 1930' they delivered bodywork for Rover, Invicta and Railton, but their largest and most important client of the century was the Rootes Group.
The company produced bodywork for army cars during the Second World War. At the same date, the company was also transformed into a public company, with Bobby Jones as CEO and his son Ernest Jones as CEO. Following the Napoleonic Wars, the company entered into negotiations with London taxi dealers Mann & Overton and Austin for the production of bodywork for the Austin FX3 taxi, launched in 1948, and the completion and delivery of the entire fleet.
Over 7,000 femtosecond films, mainly for London, were manufactured in 10 years. Work on this was done on the early Hillman Minx design units, the Austin Somerset and Hereford, the Ford Mk1 Consul and Zephyr and, later, the Mk2 Ford Consul, Zephyr and Zodiac. Bobby Jones in 1954 sells bodies to the BSA Group, which puts them under the supervision of its prestigious automobile group Daimler.
Even though it was planned that carriages would become the production site for Daimler carriages, this was never achieved. However, they turned the Conquest sedan into a drop head, using the same techniques they used on Fords and Austin, and also made a drop head Coupé bodyshell for the Daimler Conquest Roadster and bodywork for the Daimler Majestic and Majestic Major sedans.
Within the scope of BSA, the production plants were expanded and further plants were added. 1958 saw the start of Carbodies' production of the bodywork and the installation, completion and supply of the most important car in its entire annals, the Austin FX4 Taxi. Carbonodies also provided prototypes of carcasses and tools, such as the Jaguar electric hood and panel for Triumph, Ariel and BSA bikes and rollers.
Other orders completed in the 1960' and early 1970' included the transformation of Humber Hawk and Super Snipe, Singer Vogue and Triumph 2000 sedans into station wagons, but slowly, as the contracting of personal and utility equipment ceased, the company's importance of the X4 taxi increased.
1973 saw the purchase of Carbon bodies together with the BSA mother company from Manganese Bronze Holdings. In the 1970' s they tried to build their own taxi, the FX5, but it was given up in 1979 because the cost of developing it was too high. In 1982 Carbon bodies took over the full production of the FX4 when Leyland eventually dropped out of interest.
At this point, the company's only production line was the X4, despite efforts to launch new models such as the Ford Cortina MkV Cabriolet and the Range Rover Unitruck. The CR6, a new taxi car built from a Range Rover body, was discontinued after almost five years of work.
1984 the London taxi retailer Mann & Overton was purchased by Manganese Bronze Holdings Plc. The company was in 1992 re-named LTI Limited, which consists of three divisions: London Taxi Finance and LTI Carbodies, LTI Mann and Overton. Its trade name was London Taxi International. LTI Vehicles establishes this range as a global provider of London taxi services.
The company was renamed The London Taxi Company in November 2010. Recently, The London Taxi Company has partnered with the China based automotive manufacturer Geely Automotive to build a Shanghai plant to produce London cabs for the exports markets and deliver parts for the home plant in Coventry.
LTI's mother company, Manganese Bronze Holdings, was in early 2000s ailing. Some of the deal - but not the company - was saved by its China client, vendor and associate Geely, who founded a new taxi company, the London Taxi Corporation (company number 08357576), which operates as the London Taxi Company and uses asset from the Manganese Bronze Liquidation.
The new company, which was rebranded London EV Company Limited in September 2017 and then operates under the name London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC), is developing electrical utility cars at a new factory near Coventry, with the first electro-taxi - the LEVC TX going into operation.
