LEVC fits Geotab telematics to LEVC electric TX taxi and VN5 van range

The VN5 from LECV

The LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) is partnering with Geotab to provide fleet management systems in its electric TX taxi and VN5 van.

LEVC Telematics feeds information from the vehicle’s on-board electronic systems through the cloud, directly to the customer's device or desktop.

This will allow customers to monitor, compare and control the way their vehicles operate via the MyGeotab dashboard.

LEVC is giving 12 months complimentary access to the MyGeotab dashboard (worth £300 per vehicle per annum) with every new LEVC vehicle. After this initial period, customers can then choose whether to subscribe to the service further.

Battery state of charge, mileage trends, driver styles and vehicle utilisation levels are just a few of the data points fleet managers can access both in real-time and after the event.

Once connected, the MyGeotab dashboard offers a number of tools and customisable reports designed to interpret the vehicle data and turn it into valuable insights for users to optimise utilisation, reduce unexpected downtime, and minimise charging costs.

Data from Geotab can also be integrated into existing telematics dashboards from other suppliers if required.

Via Geotab Marketplace, LEVC customers can access dozens of add-on hardware and software solutions for integration, meaning the solution can be tailored to suit business needs. 

LEVC CEO, Joerg Hoffman, said: "The introduction of LEVC Telematics, connected by Geotab, enables customers to maximise these efficiencies in their own fleets.

“We are extremely excited to be joining forces with Geotab, a world leader in telematics services, and we're confident this relationship will bring even greater improvements in vehicle efficiency to our customers."

Geotab vice president for the UK and Ireland, David Savage, added: “By focusing on analysis and visualisation, LEVC’s customers will spend less time measuring and more time improving productivity and enhancing safety.

“Our integration with LEVC means their next generation of taxis and vans will be true connected vehicles, visible in MyGeotab from almost anywhere in the world.”

LEVC’s electric TX taxi offers a pure electric, zero-emission range of 64 miles and is capable of a total range of up to 318 miles thanks to its innovative range-extending technology.

VN5 is based on the same architecture and eCity technology as LEVC’s TX electric taxi.

With a pure EV range of more than 60 miles and a total flexible range of 304 miles, VN5 has up to 5.5m3 capacity and can accommodates two Euro sized pallets with a gross payload of up to 830kg.

It has been built with a large side-loading door (enabling a pallet to be side-loaded) and a 60/40 split door at the rear to make loading and unloading easy for the driver.
