Gasan Zammit representing LEVC in Malta

London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) is continuing its export market growth with the addition of Malta as another new market.

Announced this week, LEVC’s zero-emission capable taxi will now be available to customers in Malta through local importer GasanZammit.
Malta, the small archipelago in the Mediterranean, is advanced in its EV preparation with over 100 charge points already available across the island and plans to increase to 500 charge points by 2020.

Given Malta’s large appetite to encourage the uptake of EV’s LEVC identified the opportunity to provide one of the first electric transport solutions to the region, working closely with local authorities to help accelerate their electrification plans.  The Maltese Government offers substantial grants for new EV/ZEC/PiH and wheelchair accessible vehicle purchases and plans to introduce a zero-tax rate on these vehicles.   

Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC commented: “We continue with our export growth strategy, introducing our brand and products into new EU markets. With its focus on electrification, Malta is an ideal country for LEVC and will now benefit greatly from our TX electric taxis and later next year, our new electric light commercial van”

LEVC has seen major demand for the TX model across the UK and Europe, with over 3,000 sold since its launch in early 2018, with drivers and fleet owners enjoying its eCity technology, which combines 80 miles of zero-emissions pure electric range with the flexibility of a total electrically driven range of 377 miles - made possible thanks to the on-board range-extender.

In addition to savings in fuel and servicing costs, passengers benefit from a comfortable and luxurious cabin capable of seating six people complete with a panoramic roof, onboard wi-fi and charging points for mobile phones and laptops – creating an office environment even when on the move.

LEVC’s range will grow further in Q4 2020 with the launch of a new electric van, based on the TX Taxi and sharing the same eCity technology, along with the recently launched TX Shuttle, focused on the growing ride sharing and taxis markets across Europe.

These new products will create further opportunities across Europe and beyond. By 2022, LEVC expects that 70 percent of the vehicles built at its Coventry factory will be for export while the remaining 30 percent will service the UK.

By 2024, the company aims to have fleets of TXs and electric vans operating in major cities around the world.
