LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) has continued to expand its UK dealer network with the appointment of Guest Truck and Van as a sales and servicing partner in five strategic locations across the Midlands.
The dealer group will provide full sales and after sales support for LEVC’s TX electric taxi and new VN5 electric van, which began production at the company’s state-of-the-art EV manufacturing facility in Ansty, Coventry, earlier this month.
Guest Truck and Van and its sister company, Sherwood Truck and Van, will represent LEVC in Birmingham, Coventry, Stoke-on-Trent, Sheffield and Leicester, significantly improving the availability and reach of LEVC’s sales and servicing operations in the Midlands.
With more than 50 sales and service locations in the UK alone by the end of this year, it is LEVC's aim to ensure that customers are never further than a 45-minute drive time to an authorised LEVC service point. Joerg Hofmann, LEVC CEO, said: “I am pleased to welcome Guest Truck and Van to LEVC as we grow our network to support our expanding product portfolio. This strategic partnership will enhance our dealer operations in the Midlands and their experience and expertise in the commercial vehicle sector will be a great asset to our business and customers.”
Robert Spittle, Managing Director at Guest Truck and Van, said: “Entering a partnership with a world-leading manufacturer of electric taxis as they prepare to launch an exciting new product on the commercial vehicle market is a truly exciting prospect for us.
"Our expertise and experience will allow us to ensure that LEVC customers in our areas have access to the best possible support nearby, while those invested in switching to cleaner technologies in vans, or taxi drivers looking to switch to the TX, can have informed conversations with a reputable dealer. This partnership represents another step forward for us, as the industry moves towards a greener future.”
