London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) is continuing its export market growth with the addition of another new market, Malta. Announced today, LEVC’s zero-emission capable taxi will now be available to customers in Malta through local importer GasanZammit.
Malta, the small archipelago in the Mediterranean, is advanced in its EV preparation with over 100 charge points already available across the island and plans to increase to 500 charge points by 2020.
Given Malta’s large appetite to encourage the uptake of EV’s LEVC identified the opportunity to provide one of the first electric transport solutions to the region, working closely with local authorities to help accelerate their electrification plans. The Maltese Government offers substantial grants for new EV/ZEC/PiH and wheelchair accessible vehicle purchases and plans to introduce a zero-tax rate on these vehicles.
Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC, commented:
“We continue with our export growth strategy, introducing our brand and products into new EU markets. With its focus on electrification, Malta is an ideal country for LEVC and will now benefit greatly from our TX electric taxis and later next year, our new electric light commercial van.”
