The new premises will provide full Sales and After-Sales support to hackney carriage drivers in the area. There are already a number of all-electric TX taxis operating in Southampton that are helping drivers’ with lower running costs and offering passengers a more premium experience.
The world’s most advanced electric taxi is now officially available to purchase from Hampshire’s first franchised LEVC dealer.
Snows LEVC, located at our Millbrook showroom in Southampton, will be the new home of the LEVC’s purpose built all-electric TX in Hampshire and will be run by Group Franchise Manager Mark Austin.
LEVC has seen major demand for the TX model across the UK and Europe. Since January 2018, 3,000 electric taxis have been produced, preventing 6,800 tonnes of CO2 from entering the atmosphere and saving 850,000 litres of fuel.
Drivers and fleet owners enjoy it's clever eCity technology which combines 80 miles of zero-emissions pure electric range, with the flexibility of a total electrically driven range of 377 miles - all made possible thanks to the on-board range-extender.
Our Group Chairman, Stephen Snow, said: “This is an exciting time to bring LEVC into the business. The demand for zero-emissions taxis is increasing and LEVC’s reputation for excellence and innovation was a huge draw for us.”
He continued: “Drivers and fleet operators are realising both the financial and environmental merits of switching to electric taxis. Snows LEVC looks forward to providing superb products and outstanding service to taxi and van drivers across the region and beyond.”
By 2022, the Ansty manufacturing facility will be working at full capacity, building 20,000 vehicles a year which includes the TX Taxi, and the LCV, a new electric urban van, which will be launched in 2020.
Snows has 50 franchised dealerships across the South of England, stretching from Plymouth to Guildford, and including the Isle of Wight. The Group prides itself on its reputation and dedication to delivering excellent customer service, and is rewarded by the fact that over half of its business comes from returning customers. With Snows Group, driving becomes an experience, rather than a chore.
