LEVC (London Electric Vehicle Company) has just launched into the Austrian market with the appointment of Grünzweig Automobil GmbH. The dealership, which is based near Austria’s capital city of Vienna, will offer full sales and service support for LEVC’s growing range of electric vehicles including the TX taxi, TX shuttle and VN5 van.

Changes to tax (NoVA) for commercial vehicles come into force in July 2021 in Austria. This is lining up an anticipated spike in demand for vans offering an electric powertrain for customers to avoid extra charges. The two main models currently made by LEVC, the TX and VN5, are exempt from NoVA payments in Austria. In anticipation of becoming a LEVC specialist, Grünzweig Automobil GmbH is also installing fast charger equipment at its dealership.

Andreas Grünzweig, managing director of Grünzweig Automobil GmbH, said: “We are the first to offer the sustainable electric vehicles of LEVC to the Austrian market. Alongside our new partner, we are investing in innovative and sustainable mobility.

“We are constantly optimising our processes and resources as we embrace the future and demand for electric vehicles. The VN5 in particular gives customers a great opportunity to buy into clean and efficient transport for the delivery sector. We look forward to an exciting collaboration with LEVC.”

Martin Rada, managing director LEVC Europe, said: “With Grünzweig Automobil GmbH we have found a professional and experienced partner based in Vienna who shares our passion for future mobility solutions. Demand for zero-emission capable vehicles is growing rapidly in Austria, particularly in its capital city, and I look forward to working with Grünzweig to establish our brand and products in this progressive market.”
