LEVC introduces wheelchair accessible EV


LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) has unveiled its new wheelchair accessible electric TX Access, designed for sectors such as education and healthcare.

The vehicle provides ample space for wheelchair users, can accommodate up to six passengers, and features a direct access ramp that folds away into the floorspace, offering swift deployment and adjustability.

It features LEVC’s eCity drivetrain, which combines petrol and an electric motor, providing a total range of 333 miles, with a pure EV range of 78 miles and emitting 14gkm of CO2.

Compliant with ISO 10542 standards, the comprehensive restraint system allows wheelchair users to remain securely seated throughout the journey.

The completely flat floor, covered in slip-resistant material, also ensures stability and safety.

Furthermore, TX Access incorporates a swivel seat that pivots outside the vehicle, facilitating hassle-free access, as well as a large door aperture offering easy entry for wheelchair users.

The electric TX, which is manufactured at LEVC’s facility in Ansty, Coventry, also comes with optional high-visibility contrasting grab handles and seat edges.

There are also a wide range of communication options, such as hearing induction loop, braille embossed controls, and microphone system, enabling seamless contact between passengers and driver.

Geely Holding Group, based in China, has invested more than £500m in LEVC since 2014.

Alex Nan, CEO of LEVC, said: “The TX Access reaffirms the company’s commitment to transforming urban transportation and providing inclusive mobility solutions. By taking advantage of the class-leading TX platform, we are able to support a whole new market of passengers.

“LEVC is proud to contribute to a sustainable future where transportation is accessible to all.”
