LEVC Debuts Light Van Version Of Its Electrified London Taxi

London EV Company has revealed the light van version of its TX electrified London Taxi, being one of the first to offer a range-extender electric commercial vehicle in the market.

The new LCV features the same e-City electrified powertrain with the TX, which uses a Volvo-sourced 1.5-liter petrol engine as a range-extending for its 31kWh battery pack and rear-mounted electric motor.

The Geely-owned British car maker claims that their latest product offers 80 miles (130 km) of EV range, and 377 miles (606 km) when combined with the range extender.

The new LCV targets professionals who travel around 100 miles a day in cities, offering “distribution to door” between out of town depots and city centers. Thanks to its electrified powetrain, it can enter freely areas like the Ultra-Low Emissions Zone of London when operating in EV mode.

Perhaps the most important topic of a light van is the capacity of the load area: the LEVC LCV can hold two Euro pallets, featuring a carrying capacity of over 800 kg (1,763 lbs).

“We have combined our existing knowledge of the urban environment with EV technology that can put urban mobility on a sustainable pathway,” said LEVC’s CEO Joerg Hofmann.

“Durable, reliable, efficient, cost effective and high quality, that is our new LCV. London and the UK will be first to market, then we will extend the vehicle to Europe and further afield. Our goal is to be the leading European electric commercial vehicle provider,” Hofmann added.  ​

Sales of the new LEVC LCV are expected to start in the second half of 2020 in the UK, with more countries to follow.
