LEVC welcomed the Prime Minister to Ansty, Coventry for a tour of its state-of-the-art facility, the first production plant in the UK dedicated to the manufacture of electric vehicles.
Hosted by Joerg Hofmann, LEVC CEO, the Prime Minister was highly supportive of the business and its products, describing the TX electric taxis as “magnificent machines”.
With more than 3,000 sales to date, the electric TX is popular with drivers in the UK as well as increasing global success with a major focus in Europe, in markets such as Germany, Norway and the Netherlands.
Powered by the renowned eCity technology, the TX is cleaning up cities around the world and, since its introduction, has already saved around 10,000 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere and preventing the consumption of 5.5m litres of fossil fuel.
In addition to the TX electric taxi, LEVC also presented the Prime Minister with its future electric commercial vehicle offering – a one tonne electric van which will be based on the same technology as the electric taxi and is due to be launched in Q3 2020.
