LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) have announced plans to grow beyond high-end taxi manufacturing to become a leading zero-carbon mobility technology company. Building on its unrivalled heritage – LEVC has built the iconic London taxi for more than 70 years – the company’s new strategy will see it grow beyond manufacturing to deliver smart, green, safe and accessible mobility solutions to more people than ever before.
Underlining this commitment, LEVC UK revealed its new senior management team, who will implement the new strategy. The new appointments will maximise the engineering, marketing and production expertise that exists at the firm’s state-of-the-art home in Ansty, UK, backed by the global resources of parent company Geely Holding Group.
Alex Nan continues in his role of Global CEO, and he will now also take on the role of UK CEO for LEVC. “Since the launch of the TX in 2018, LEVC has experienced rapid growth,” said Nan. “With 9,000 global sales to date, those vehicles are travelling more than 500 million miles and preventing 152,000 tonnes of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere.
“In London, LEVC’s TX accounts for 82% of the taxi market, and there are now more TXs on the streets than diesel TX4s. LEVC looks forward to continuing to help the capital to accelerate the transition to a clean, green EV black cab fleet.”
LEVC’s manufacturing plant at Ansty, Coventry, will continue to be the home of the iconic TX taxi – the famous London black cab – as well as the next generation of models. The company are targeting a 20% year-on-sales increase for 2023.
