The new retailers will offer sales and aftersales support. LEVC’s existing retail network is spread across 12 UK cities with the TX now a common sight on the streets of Birmingham, Coventry, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as its largest market, London.
Supporting drivers already operating in Nottingham, Slough and Southampton – and making it even easier for new customers to buy an LEVC TX – the addition of these new dealers will also underpin local authorities’ efforts to improve urban air quality by introducing zero emissions-capable taxis across the UK.
The growth of the network is also further evidence of ever-increasing demand for the TX electric taxi. LEVC recently celebrated a record September with its best month of sales in company history: 352 examples of the TX were sold, building on month-on month sales growth since April this year.
“We are delighted to welcome new partners in Nottingham, Southampton and Slough into the LEVC family, expanding our retail network as we implement our growth strategy” said Jöerg Hofmann, LEVC CEO. “These new dealerships will help us engage with our customers in a greater number of regions in the UK, bringing us closer than ever to the people who drive our taxis every day.”
LEVC has seen major demand for the TX model across the UK and Europe, with 3,000 sold since its launch in early 2018, with drivers and fleet owners enjoying its clever eCity technology, which combines 80 miles of zero-emissions pure electric range with the flexibility of a total electrically driven range of 377 miles - made possible thanks to the on-board range-extender.
In addition to savings in fuel and servicing costs, passengers benefit from a comfortable and luxurious cabin capable of seating six people complete with a panoramic roof, onboard wi-fi and charging points for mobile phones and laptops – creating an office environment even when on the move.
LEVC’s range will grow further in 2020 with the launch of a new electric van, based on the TX Taxi and sharing the same eCity technology.
