LEVC changes management team for strategic reorientation

As 2023 comes to a close, the London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) has announced a strategic shift, underlined by a change in management. LEVC now aims “to become a leading zero-carbon mobility technology company”.

Global CEO Alex Nan will continue in his role, but will now also take on the role of UK CEO. According to the company, he is to be responsible for overseeing overall business strategy, technology, product planning and coordination with the Geely Holding Group. Chris Allen was appointed as Managing Director of LEVC, after previously holding the role of Legal Director and Company Secretary, and will be responsible for procurement, manufacturing, technology and quality, government affairs, as well as mobility services.

A new Executive Director has also been appointed with Jenny Jin, who will be looking after sales, marketing and aftersales. Moe Wang, the general manager of LEVC Overseas will also take responsibility as the Director of Overseas Sales for LEVC UK.

“Since the launch of the TX in 2018, LEVC has experienced rapid growth, with 9,000 global sales to date, those vehicles travelling more than 500 million miles and preventing 152,000 tonnes of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere,” said Alex Nan, adding: “Going forward, our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant at Ansty, Coventry, will continue to be the home of the famous, iconic TX taxi – the London black cab and new generation models. We will build on LEVC’s unrivalled heritage and grow beyond high-end taxi manufacturing, delivering smart, green, safe and accessible mobility to more customers than ever before. Watch this space in 2023, as we are targeting a 20% year-on-year sales increase, and more details on LEVC’s strategy will be revealed in Q1.”

This is not hte first major personnel change, as the company had changed CEO in June, after it had started expanding its presence on the mainland in February.
