Since 2014, GEELY has invested more than £500m into the London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC), allowing it to build an entirely new manufacturing facility in Ansty, Coventry. LEVC manufactures the world’s only purpose-built, range extended electric taxi from its state-of-the-art factory and its future vision as the leading green commercial mobility solution provider.
Since January 2018, more than 3,800 electric taxis have been produced, already preventing 30,000 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere and, as a result, saving 17.5 million litres of fuel.
By 2022, the Ansty facility will be working at full capacity, building 20,000 vehicles a year that include the TX Taxi, TX Shuttle and a new electric van which will be launched in 2020.
Having already established a new central European sales office in Frankfurt, LEVC continues to grow its presence globally. Most recently, LEVC has launched the TX electric taxi into Japan with continued success in key European markets such as: Germany, France, Switzerland, Norway and Denmark. In 2020 new markets in the Middle East, New Zealand and Australia will bring the total export markets to 19. This strategy will see LEVC move from 90 percent domestic sales and 10 percent export to 60 percent export by 2022.
