TfL welcomes competition in the London taxi market and for this reason TfL has engaged with a number of prospective manufacturers of zero emission capable taxis.

TfL is happy to hear from any manufacturer with a vehicle that meets the Conditions of Fitness, including the accessibility requirements.
