Answered By:

Transport for London (TfL) engages with a number of manufacturers on a regular basis, whether it be in person, over the phone or through correspondence. In the past 12 months, TfL has met:

·         Mercedes Benz UK on three occasions

·         Dynamo / Nissan on 12 occasions*

·         London Electric Vehicle Company on 12 occasions*

*These are approximations based on a search of past meetings with representatives of Transport for London’s Taxi and Private Hire department. There may be further ad-hoc meetings that have taken place but could not be located.
