LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) today announces its entrance into the Egyptian market with the appointment of Abou Ghaly Motors as its official importer. LEVC’s launch in Egypt increases the company’s global green footprint further, with its iconic TX electric taxi already operating around the world in places like Japan, Netherlands, France, Germany, Azerbaijan and Switzerland.
Joerg Hofmann, LEVC CEO, commented:
“I am pleased to welcome Abou Ghaly Motors to the LEVC global network, as we continue to deliver on our export strategy and introduce new markets to our electric vehicles. Abou Ghaly is a very professional automotive business, with over 40 years’ experience and their progressive e-mobility vision is closely aligned with our own. I’m convinced TX will be a great success in Egypt, catering for the growing customer demand around the world for greener transport options.”
As the biggest sponsors of the highly anticipated El Gouna Film Festival in Egypt, Abou Ghaly Motors will present the electric TX on Friday this week. TX will be available to purchase from its dealership in Cairo and can also be booked as part of a chauffer service through an online booking system.
Abou Ghaly Motors CEO commented:
“Environmental sustainability is a clear trend in all future developments, especially mobility. LEVC’s decision to develop into a greener and cleaner model of transport has inspired us to collaborate in adapting to a transformative change at a moment of great opportunity. Our goal is to not only make all journeys safer, faster, and more comfortable but to also make our sure our cities more accessible and less polluted.”
Space, comfort and practicality of LEVC’s electric TX, combine with green technology and a small turning circle - a trademark of the iconic London ‘black cab’ – and all 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.
Utilising LEVC’s eCity technology, TX offers 63 miles (101km) of zero emissions driving and a total electrically driven range of 316 miles (510 km)*. More than 36,000 tonnes of CO2 have been prevented from entering the atmosphere and 21 million litres of fuel saved from use, based on the total number of TXs sold (4,500) operating over one year.
