LEVC’s (London Electric Vehicle Company) expansion of its European network has marked another milestone today with the appointment of dealers in both Berlin and Hamburg – Germany’s two largest cities.
Koch Gruppe Automobile AG in Berlin and AMC Kruell GmbH in Hamburg will provide full sales and after sales support for LEVC’s TX Shuttle, which is based on the iconic London black taxi, and from Spring 2021, the company’s new VN5 one-tonne light van.
Their appointment brings the number of full LEVC dealers in Germany to three following the announcement in July of Autohaus Markötter Bielefeld, operated by the Markötter Group, which is located in north-western Germany and supports customers in the Ostwestfalen-Lippe region. In addition to this, LEVC already has an additional six aftersales sites located in: Berlin, Karlsruhe, Hamburg, Hanau, Krefeld, and Munich.
LEVC, based in Coventry, UK has been manufacturing the official London black cab for more than 100 years, reinventing the vehicle as the TX Taxi in 2017; a range extended zero emissions capable taxi, which has already sold 4,500 units worldwide.
Joerg Hofmann, LEVC CEO, commented: “We are very pleased to add Koch Gruppe Automobile AG in Berlin and AMC Kruell GmbH in Hamburg to our growing network of dealers in Europe.
