Taxi manufactures LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) have today announced the opening of a brand-new sales and aftersales facility in Dartford as the company continues with its rapid network expansion plans.
Ascotts Electric Vehicle Centre will supply full sales and aftersales support for the TX electric taxi and VN5 electric van.
Ascotts started business in 1980 and has been an existing main dealer for LEVC since the launch of TX in 2018 – originally appointed as the first independent authorised dealership - providing sales and service support for the TX electric taxi at their site in London.
The new flagship site in Dartford builds on Ascotts extensive experience selling the TX electric taxi and allows them to extend their customer base to the wider commercial vehicle market.
Joerg Hofmann, LEVC CEO, said: “Ascotts has played a key role in the success of our TX electric taxi since its launch in 2018 and I personally appreciate Andy Ascott’s continuing support, for sharing our company vision and investing in our future.
“With the recent launch of our first electric van, VN5, I’m confident his new site will provide an excellent LEVC sales and service experience. Adding Dartford to our dealer network is also another step in our UK growth plan to ensure no customer is further than a 45 minute drive from an authorised LEVC location.”
Andy Ascott, Managing Director Ascotts, said: “As early adopters of the electric age, we have developed many years’ experience working with LEVC since becoming the first independent LEVC TX approved dealer. The new electric vehicle centre in Dartford will provide a welcoming environment and a first-class customer experience for all LEVC customers.”
