London Electric Vehicle Co appoints vehicle racking company


Coventry-based LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) has announced its first official conversion partner for its new VN5 electric van. Modul-System is one of the largest global vehicle racking manufacturers and will support LEVC across multiple key European markets.

High Wycombe-based Modul-System has been operating for more than 40 years and offers custom and lightweight vehicle racking designed to meet the needs of the commercial vehicle market. The company has already provided conversions for LEVC’s VN5 prototype ‘trial fleet’ of converted TXs that are being used by a wide range of businesses including logistics giants DPD and Royal Mail, as well as telecoms flagship, BT Group.

The partnership comes in the same month as LEVC’s official VN5 production start at its manufacturing facility in Ansty, Coventry, the UK’s only dedicated electric vehicle factory. VN5 is expected to account for over 70% of production volume and is now available in the UK market, with the European order book opening in Spring 2021.

Joerg Hofmann, Chief Executive at LEVC, said: “Recognised as one of the most reputable converters and manufacturers of custom racking, Modul-System will create bespoke solutions for VN5, tailoring the vehicle to the specific needs and requirements of our customers. From Logistics and telecommunications to food refrigeration and utilities, VN5 is well suited to a wide range of sectors.”

Paul Railston Managing Director at Modul-System UK said:: ​ “Modul-System are delighted to have been given the opportunity to partner with LEVC in the development our conversion solution for the VN5 Electric Van. This was a great opportunity and a journey we really enjoyed being part of. VN5 is a van that can really go to work and deliver in the workplace to meet the operational and vehicle application needs of a wide range of businesses and trades​.
