LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company), part of the Geely Group, has recently launched its innovative new pure electric vehicle technology, which will provide the foundation of its transformation from a high-end taxi manufacturer, to a leading provider of e-mobility solutions.
The new Space Oriented Architecture (SOA) is co-developed with Geely Holding Group. SOA is modular and scalable EV platform focused on setting new standards for onboard space, bringing interior-optimised zero-emission mobility to more consumers than ever before, while enabling LEVC to enter new sectors.
LEVC: the new SOA technology
Developed over the past 2.5 years at R&D centres in China, Sweden, the UK and Germany, SOA’s flexibility aims to maximise interior space, offering multiple seating and load-carrying configurations. It can support a wide range of new products – from passenger carrying models, to commercial vehicles, offering significant advances in range, efficiency, safety, charging time, durability and connectivity.
With a centrally-located battery, SOA delivers a fully flat floor, maximising space for occupants, cargo, or both. To this truly flat floor, SOA optimises the packaging of electric powertrain components at the front, freeing up additional space for the driver and passenger. At the rear, SOA utilises an innovative rear suspension design that incorporates extra carrying capacity underneath the main luggage area, behind the rear axle.
Supporting vehicle sizes from 4,860 mm-5995 mm in length and 1945 mm-1998 mm in width, with wheelbases from 3000 mm-3800 mm, SOA is configurable for a wide range of EVs, from spacious passenger-carrying models to cargo-optimised commercial applications.
Moreover, being equipped with a wide choice of batteries from 73 kWh to 120 kWh, SOA has been designed to suit the individual needs of a customer.
