Frequently Asked Questions

1. When will the LCV be launched?

Close

The new LCV’s order book will open in Q3 2020.

2. How much will it cost?

Close

At this time, we have not specified the price – we will communicate this nearer to the time of the order book opening. Model year legislation changes are not yet finalised.

3. Is there an OLEV grant to subsidise the purchase?

Close

At present (June 2019) there is up to £8,000 grant available for new energy LCV’s. By 2030, 40% of new vans must be ‘new energy’ in the UK which is why it is important to incentivise the take up of these vehicles.

4. Where & how can I buy the vehicle?

Close

The vehicle will be sold through our European Sales Office located in Frankfurt that will open imminently. We will also be selling the vehicle via our direct sales team at LEVC head office in Ansty, Coventry.

5. Are the technical details similar to TX?

Close

Under the surface the LCV is based upon the same proven architecture as the TX electric taxi: a bonded aluminium platform that ensures structural strength and low weight.

It will also feature the same battery mounted under the floor with an electric motor on the rear axle (that always drives the vehicle) and 1.5-litre petrol engine range extender under the bonnet, giving an official NEDC electric-only range of up to 80 miles and with the range extender, an overall range of up to 377 miles. That range means the LCV could travel from the centre of London to Northampton in zero emission mode, and as far as Edinburgh with combined petrol and EV powertrains.

In terms of its design, it is less deliberately less distinctive than the iconic TX; the front end ‘face’ is more reserved, as is the rear treatment.

6. What are the key specifications & targets for this vehicle?

Close
  • A payload weight greater than 800kg
  • A payload volume greater than 5m3
  • The capability to load two x Euro pallets (measuring 1.0m x 1.2m)
  • Best in class turning circle

7. Why the need for a range-extended electric van?

Close

Urban emissions are under the spotlight, across the globe. London has launched an Ultra-Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ), which will be expanded in the coming years, and other cities across the UK and Europe will soon be implementing low or even zero emission zones. Then there is the rise in internet deliveries and an exponential increase in demand to move all types of goods around urban areas with little or no impact on air quality.

With the size of these emission zones increasing, and technology to support full Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) with long driving ranges still under development, a range-extended light commercial vehicle, one that can carry out city centre drops in zero emission mode, but also drive several hundred miles – to a factory or warehouse or depot – using existing infrastructure, is able to operate as a ‘distribution to door' van, not just 'last-mile' van.
