LEVC partners with EO Charging to deliver smart home chargepoints in Scotland


EO Charging, a leading UK electric vehicle (EV) charger manufacturer, has been selected as the London Electric Vehicle Company’s (LEVC) official charging partner in Scotland. 

EO will support the makers of the new electric London taxi with the supply and installation of Smart Home Chargepoints across Scotland.

LEVC owners will be offered an EO Mini Pro, the world’s smallest smart electric vehicle charger, as part of an exclusive deal signed between the two companies. Designed and manufactured in the UK, the EO Mini Pro is OLEV approved - allowing electric taxi drivers to claim the UK government funded ‘Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme’ (reducing the cost of installing a charger by up to 75%). The partnership with EO Charging follows the launch of LEVC’s first dealership in Glasgow, a strategic move by the company as it looks to capitalise on increasing demand for commercial electric vehicles in the region. LEVC recently celebrated the production of the 2,500th TX (electric taxi), of which 65 are currently operating across Scotland. So far, these vehicles have saved over 6,800 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere and helped save drivers around £3,850,000 in fuel savings. Ryan Spillane, Head of Commercial Sales at EO Charging, said: “Scotland introduced its first low-emission zone (LEZ) in Glasgow last year, a clear indication of the country’s commitment to reducing congestion and improving air quality. With plans being drawn up for low-emission zones in Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen – taxi and commercial vehicle drivers need to think carefully about the next vehicle they purchase. “To support LEVC’s ambitions in Scotland, we’ve developed a network of EO trained and OLEV approved installers that will support new and existing TX owners with the installation of smart electric vehicle chargers. We’re honoured to be working alongside a fellow British manufacturer and creators of one of the world’s most iconic vehicles.” Richard Turnbull, Head of EV Infrastructure at LEVC, said: “’Smart’ Home Charging provides our customers with a range of benefits including the ability to schedule charging and take advantage of off-peak energy tariffs, which is especially important to commercial vehicle operators. LEVC is delighted to be partnering with EO Charging who will deliver tailored end to end ‘Smart’ home charging solutions which meet the needs of LEVC’s valued customers in Scotland.”
