LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) has appointed Gillanders Motors as sales and service partner for the North East of Scotland.
The Aberdeenshire-based dealer will provide full sales and after sales support for LEVC’s TX electric taxi and new VN5 electric van, which began production at the company’s EV manufacturing facility in Coventry at the end of last year.
Gillanders operates a successful light commercial vehicle business and is an established player in the taxi market.
The site will bring the number of domestic LEVC sales locations in the UK to 17, along with more than 30 additional service centres.
TX is the world’s first purpose-built electric taxi and utilises LEVC’s eCity technology while VN5 is based on the same architecture.
Since 2014, Chinese manufacturer Geely has invested more than £500m into LEVC.
Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC, said, “We are pleased to welcome Gillanders to our UK network to represent LEVC in Aberdeenshire.
“With their wealth of commercial vehicle experience, GIllanders will play a vital role in helping us grow our brand presence and customer base in Scotland.
“Their appointment is also part of our network growth strategy to ensure that LEVC customers are never further than 45 minutes from a sales and service point.”
Mark D. Stevenson, sales manager at Gillanders Motors, added, “We are delighted to add the LEVC brand to the Gillanders family.
“As we continue to increase our electrified vehicle range, LEVC offers a viable alternative for taxi and van drivers looking to benefit from the massive savings offered by an electric vehicle.”
