LEVC launches the electric L380 in China

London EV Company, or LEVC for short has just revealed its new L380 vehicle, a mini-van style vehicle built by the same company who makes the plug-in-hybrid taxis in London. This is also the first time LEVC is expanding outside of its taxi and van manufacturing into selling to consumers direct. The new electric L380 MPV is on sale now in China with prices from 379,900 RMB, which comes out at around £40,000 UK prices. There are plans to sell this outside of China pretty soon, with a UK launch expected in the next two years.

The new L380 sits on its new Space Oriented Architecture (SOA) and has a huge 140kWh battery pack, 512 miles of range and two electric motors. A lot of the meterials inside take inspiration from the premium airline industry with individual chairs, soft furnishings and sunroof.

Start of sales in China for our innovative new L380 luxury MPV marks one of the most momentous occasions in LEVC’s history. Our brand is rapidly accelerating its transition from manufacturing the world’s most advanced and iconic taxi, to becoming a leading e-mobility technology company and, with that, we are building on our place within the Geely Holding Group, maximising the Group’s research and development capabilities, global supply chain and manufacturing resources to enable us to meet our ambitious targets.
The innovative SOA technology – developed alongside Geely – is spearheading our exciting new strategy that will see the business take a global approach, growing our footprint across the world, with multiple new models based on the SOA platform leading the way. The L380 meets demand for flexible, multi-occupant, multi-purpose pure electric luxury vehicles, launching LEVC into an entirely new sector. As with all our products, L380 takes inspiration from the company’s rich history, combined with the vast resources and technical innovation of the Geely Holding Group. The start of sales sees our momentum advance, setting us on the path to bringing cutting edge zero-emission transportation to more customers than ever before.”

While a launch in the UK is expected, the prices mentioned are only a direct currency conversion with final prices yet to be confirmed.
