LEVC is an abbreviation for London Electric Vehicle Company. It derives from the well-known British London Taxi Company, founded in 1919. This British cab maker was acquired by Geely in 2012 and focused on manufacturing BEV and EREV cars. By 2023, LEVC made up over 50% of all licensed taxis in London. The LEVC model line comprises a single car called TX. Soon, the second model, L380, will enter the Chinese market. 

LEVC L380 pre-orders

On May 21, the LEVC L380 became available for pre-order in China. Chinese buyers can book this minivan for a refundable deposit of just 2,000 yuan (280 USD). These customers will be prioritized after the deliveries start. LEVC will also give the first customers traditional Hainan bracelets as souvenirs. Back to the LEVC L380, its price range wasn’t specified. But LEVC underlined that it can provide a variety of seat layouts, from 3 seats to 8 seats.
