LEVC, London Electric Vehicle Company, produces the characteristic state-of-the-art London taxis, all powered by an electric powertrain with petrol range extender. However, there is a further novelty: it has widened its range by presenting L380, a minivan based on the Space Oriented Architecture (SOA) by Geely.
LEVC is driven by a front 272-Hp electric motor and it is powered by a nickel- cobalt-manganate battery (NMC) that goes from 73 to 120 kWh.
L380 will enter the Chinese market of electric minivans starting from next year.
“LEVC’s strategy is to become a leading zero-carbon mobility technology company and our new direction will see us grow beyond manufacturing the world’s most advanced taxi, the TX, and deliver smart, green, safe, and accessible mobility solutions to all. Building on our unrivalled heritage in producing the iconic London black cab, we have adapted our business to meet the rapidly accelerating demand for spacious, flexible electric vehicles. The L380 MPV ushers in not one but two firsts for LEVC: it is our first model to be based on advanced, flexible Space Oriented Architecture (SOA) technology and it also launches LEVC into an entirely new sector”, said Alex Nan, CEO of LEVC.
