LEVC expands presence in Spain
The London Electric Vehicle Company has appointed three more dealerships in Spain. Opening in Bilbao, Malaga and Valencia, the new franchises extend LEVC’s reach in Spain to now five centres, following the appointment in 2021 of Ronda 15 in Barcelona and Auto Elia in Madrid.
All of the Spanish partners provide full sales support for the electrified TX Taxi, TX Shuttle and VN5 Van. The VN5 Van features a gross payload of 830 kg and shares the same lightweight aluminium construction and advanced eCity technology as the TX Taxi. The VN5 has an electric range of over 63 miles (102 km). In comparison, the TX Taxi has an electric range of 64 miles (103 km) and features space for six passengers. With a 50kW charger, both the LEVC TX Taxi and VN5 Van batteries can be recharged to 80% capacity in around 30 minutes.
The London Electric Vehicle company has been steadily expanding their market reach, with Japan and Germany in 2020, followed by Austria in 2021. A major order was also sent to Azerbaijan,
“In April 2021, the Spanish government stepped up a gear, introducing a range of measures, including financial initiatives, to promote rapid growth in the EV sector by aiming to place five million EVs on Spain’s roads by 2030,” said LEVC CEO Joerg Hofmann, adding: “Now, the timing is perfect for growing our business further and reaching new customers in Bilbao, Malaga and Valencia, through a strong partnership that harnesses the expertise, enthusiasm and experience of the highly regarded Carwagen Group, Vedat Group, and Vypsa Group.”
