UK-based manufacturer LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) supplied 60 VN5 electric vans to EV charging specialist Pod Point. the latter will use the vehicles to install charging points across the UK, as well as helping the business to maintain its network of more than 6,200 public charging bays.
The VN5 electric van is based on the same innovative architecture and proven eCity technology as LEVC’s TX electric taxi. With a pure EV range of slightly more than 100 km and a total flexible range of 513 km, it is ideally suited to urban deliveries in zero-emission mode, as well as longer journeys.
