LEVC expands UK service network

LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) has expanded its UK authorised service and maintenance network, with the addition of 20 new service centres, including one in Belfast.

These additional 20 authorised service centres join LEVC’s existing 17 sites, which will increase its existing UK network to 37 locations by the end of October.

Each authorised site will be able to carry out servicing, maintenance, general repairs and MOTs for LEVC TX taxi as well as its new electric van, VN5.

The VN5

LEVC’s expansion comes after the firm signed a partnership with one of the UK’s largest end-to-end fleet management companies, Rivus Fleet Solutions.

Joerg Hofmann, LEVC CEO, commented: “As a key part of our business growth strategy, our global service network is also expanding rapidly. This new partnership with Rivus Fleet Solutions is a significant step forward, doubling LEVC’s service footprint in the UK. We are delivering on our commitment to ensure that our customers are never further than a 45-minute drive from an authorised site.”

LEVC’s new VN5 electric van has a flexible zero emissions capable range of over 484 km (300 miles) and offers the same reliable, hard-working construction and unrivalled turning circle agility as the company’s highly successful TX taxi.

With up to 5.5m3 capacity, VN5 easily accommodates two Euro sized pallets with a gross payload of 830kg. It has been built with a large side-loading door (enabling a pallet to be side-loaded) and a 60/40 split door at the rear to make loading and unloading easy for the driver.
