Coventry-headquartered electric vehicle manufacturer LEVC has appointed its first dealer partner in southern Sweden.
Dealership Liljas Personbilar will be the new home of the TX and VN5, supporting LEVC sales in Kalmar and Växjö.
Anna Wansland, vice president of Liljas Group, said: “LEVC and Liljas share many values. Both our companies come from a history that goes almost as far back as the automobile itself. With that said we both always strive to stay innovative and relevant.
“That’s why our collaboration felt very natural from the start. We look forward to present LEVC to our customers that like that really classic look but still love technology and innovation.”
Joerg Hofmann, chief executive of LEVC, added: “The continuous growth of our industry-leading products and technologies to new markets across Europe is a very exciting time for LEVC.
“I am extremely pleased to be announcing another partnership and welcome two new LEVC homes in Sweden. As a European leader of electric vehicles and sustainability, Sweden is going to be a great location for the future of our products.”
Liljas Personbilar will provide full sales and services support for LEVC’s TX electric taxi and VN5 electric van, which began production at the company’s manufacturing facility in Ansty, Coventry, at the end of last year.
Oscar Cullberg, chief executive of Liljas Personbilar, said: “We have already seen a giant interest for the VN5 with its huge load space, short turning radius and high comfort.
“When it comes to EV transports of this size you usually don’t get all three.”
