LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) has appointed a third dealer group in the Netherlands, partnering with Harrie Arendsen BV to offer sales and servicing in the Gelderland and Overijssel regions in the east of the country.
Joining the recent appointments of Stern Lijnden and Mobility Centre, LEVC will now have nine full sales and service sites in the Netherlands. The continued expansion in the Netherlands supports LEVC’s growing dealer representation in Europe.
With a large presence in the east of the Netherlands, Harrie Arendsen BV will offer an LEVC Sales Point in Ruurlo and Service Centres in Doetinchem and Hengelo (OV).
Between the dealer sites, the locations will provide customers in the region full sales and after sales support for LEVC’s TX shuttle, based on the iconic London black taxi and, from Spring 2021, the company’s new electric van, VN5.
Joerg Hofmann, LEVC CEO, said: “The Netherlands will play a key role in LEVC’s strategic expansion plans across Europe and I am pleased to welcome the experienced Harrie Arendsen BV group to the LEVC network. Their appointment will ensure we have sufficient support in this key market, expanding our reach to customers in the east of the Netherlands.”
Frank Arendsen, Managing Director of Harrie Arendsen BV, said: “Becoming a member of the LEVC dealer network in the Netherlands fits perfectly with our purpose to fulfill the role of a mobility partner instead of a car supplier. LEVC is a great addition to our product portfolio and offers a barrier-free mobility with its TX model. With the launch of the VN5 model we will be able to offer a light commercial vehicle equipped to handle the needs of commercial customers.
“We are looking forward to working with LEVC. There is a lot of synergy between our companies when looking at our attention to detail, the high quality of our products and services, and the respect for our environment that has defined us as a family business for more than 50 years now.”
