LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) continues its European expansion with the appointment of a new dealer, SVENSCAR GmbH, located in Regensburg, Bavaria in Germany. Following the establishment of the company’s central European sales office in Frankfurt last year this new dealer now takes the number of full LEVC dealers in Germany to five1.
Joerg Hofmann, LEVC CEO, commented:
“Our representation in Germany is growing at a rapid pace and we are delighted to add SVENSCAR GmbH in Regensburg to our dealer network in Germany. We are certain that they will provide an excellent service to customers across Bavaria who are looking to switch to greener commercial vehicles and public transport services.”
SVENSCAR GmbH, Regensburg will provide full sales and after sales support for LEVC’s TX taxi and TX Shuttle and from Spring 2021, the company’s new electric van, VN5. In addition to the Regensburg dealership, the SVENSCAR GmbH dealer network has locations in Baierbrunn, Haag and Neumarkt. As Bavaria’s first and only LEVC dealer, the Regensburg site will provide full sales and after sales support to customers in the city and surrounding area.
Dominik Weber, Executive Director, SVENSCAR GmbH commented:
“We are very pleased to agree a dealer partnership with LEVC. We are very active in the taxi business and see LEVC as an ideal complement to our Volvo brand. We are also looking forward to delivering VN5 electric vans to customers next year.”
The TX Shuttle and TX taxi models offer space, comfort and practicality, combined with environmental friendliness and a small turning circle, a trademark of the iconic London ‘black cab’ – ideal credentials for city transportation.With seating for six passengers and wheelchair accessibility, all travellers enjoy standard features such as air conditioning, charging facilities for smartphones and laptops and the TX’s generous panoramic roof. A purpose-built partition screen separates the driver and passenger compartments and, with contactless payment in the rear, easy to clean surfaces and an intercom system that allows driver and passenger to always communicate clearly, travellers are kept as safe and protected as possible.
Both models are powered by LEVC’s innovative eCity technology, allowing 93km of zero emissions driving and a total electrically driven range of over 484 km. Drivers can save more than €100 a week on fuel costs and more than 36,000 tonnes of CO2 have been saved from entering the atmosphere since its launch in early 2018.
Individuals and companies looking to purchase the TX can take advantage of a €3,750 environmental grant, due to the TX being included in the funding list of the Federal office for Economics and Export Control (BAFA).
From next Spring, LEVC’s new electric van, VN5, will be launched in Europe. Operating in the one-tonne sector, VN5 shares the same bold, distinctive design and lightweight aluminium construction as TX, as well as its innovative eCity electric technology. This gives a flexible zero emissions capable range of over 300 miles (484 km)2 and, with up to 5.5m3 capacity, VN5 cargo capacity easily accommodates two Euro sized pallets with a gross payload of 830kg.
The launch of VN5 will significantly widen the appeal in the commercial vehicle sector and LEVC’s export strategy is on track to support this major growth with plans to operate in 21 European countries by the end of 2021.
