The London Electric Vehicle Company, has launched its second product, a 2,900kg GVW van, named LCV. The maker of the LEVC TX electric taxi, which is becoming a familiar sight (if not sound) in London and, increasingly, other cities on the continent, is part of the Chinese Geely group, which owns the Volvo car brand. The van has a nominal payload of 1,000kg in a loadspace large enough for two euro pallets. The LCV features the same range-extended electric driveline as the TX taxi, of which more than 2,500 examples have been sold. It offers a claimed range of 80 miles on electric power and a combined petrol and electric range of 377 miles. It will be built alongside the taxi at LECV’s purpose-built factory at Ansty, in Warwickshire.

Freight in the City is the must-attend event for anyone involved in making urban logistics cleaner, safer, quieter or more efficient. This free event is taking place at Alexandra Palace, London on 6 November. Click here to register for your free tickets.
