Class-leading battery warranties

All vehicles benefit from LEVC's best-in-class battery warranty. This exceptional guarantee demonstrates the confidence LEVC have in the performance and longevity of the drive battery.

The lithium-on battery has been extensively tested over millions of miles, in all conditions and environments, to ensure it won't let you down during the long working life of your vehicle.

Intelligent battery management

Our vehicles proactively help prolong the life of the battery by keeping it at the optimum temperature when the vehicle is in use or charging.

Severe ambient temperatures and extended periods under load can cause the battery cells to heat up, accelerating the aging process.

To combat this, over 40 separate electronic control units perform a variety of functions - including a cooling system dedicated to keeping the battery at exactly the right temperature.



Liquid Cooling System

Unlike other electric vehicles which rely upon passive Air Cooling Systems to manage the battery temperature, LEVC adopts an ultra-efficient Liquid Cooling System.

This active measure, widely adopted in high-end passenger EVs, circulates liquid refrigerant, not ambient air, to maintain the battery at a comfortable temperature; helping keep battery degradation to an absolute minimum. Think air conditioning vs standard ventilation while waiting in traffic on a hot summer day.


Recharge without worry

The same on-board control units also help protect the battery by reducing the risk of damage through overcharging. Once fully charged, the on-board systems prevent the battery from taking in more electricity than is needed.

During development engineers simulated charging the battery under different usage profiles, to ensure it always met the design objectives, regardless of how the vehicle is recharged.

Whether recharged slowly overnight or quickly using a rapid charger, in all cases the power available remained consistent, with no decline in performance.

Durable & damage-resistant

A resilient metal casing around the battery protects it from being damaged by debris and impacts.

The cells of the battery are also arranged in three different strings, meaning that the vehicle can continue to function even in the unlikely event of battery damage.

Instant torque for a smooth, consistent drive

There’s no lag, no revving-up or shifting gears – just instant torque the moment you put down the pedal.

The performance delivered is always consistent and is not linked to the state of battery charge or petrol range extender operation - so you always have smooth, effortless acceleration even when fully loaded.

Safe & secure

Without specialised equipment and a vehicle lift, removal of the battery in the electric vehicle is virtually impossible.

Richie Sibal, Chief Engineer for Electrical Systems explains how the batteries in TX & VN5 are protected against potential theft.

Further peace of mind

For even greater peace of mind, all vehicles are available to purchase on Personal Contract Purchase (PCP). This allows you to set an affordable monthly payment for up to five years, and gives you the option of returning the vehicle to us at the end of the term, taking absolutely no risk around the health of the battery or the residual value of the vehicle.
