18.6.2019LEVC reveals new LCV
LEVC has shown off its new LCV, with the van based on the same powertrain technology as the TX range-extended black cab already on sale.
Targeting urban drivers, the medium-sized van has a range of 80 miles on a single charge, increased to 377 miles (combined) when the engine is used to charge the battery on the go.
LEVC has designed the LCV not just as a 'last-mile' delivery van, but a 'distribution-to-door' vehicle, thay can link out of town depots and city centres. Drivers can use the range extender on open roads, and switch to EV mode when in built up areas.
It's a market that is currently dominated by diesel vans, with only Nissan's e-NV200 pure-EV any real electric challenger currently. More pure-EV vans are on their way, but LEVC is the only one offering a range-extended EV, which will appeal to a number of drivers and fleets.
Further details will be announced closer to launch, but like its TX taxi, LEC is targeting low total cost of ownership figures.
