LEVC has announced its first official conversion partner for its new VN5 electric van. Modul-System, who are one of the largest global vehicle racking manufacturers, will support LEVC across multiple key European markets. Modul-System has been operating for over 40 years and offers high quality, custom and lightweight vehicle racking solutions specifically designed to meet the demanding and ever-changing needs of the commercial vehicle market.
The company has already provided conversions for LEVC’s VN5 prototype trial fleet of converted TXs, which 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 starts at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Ansty, Coventry. This is the UK’s only dedicated electric vehicle factory. The VN5 is expected to account for over 70 percent of production volume and is now available in the UK market, with the European order book opening in spring 2021.
Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC, commented: “We are pleased to announce Modul-System as our first official conversion partner for VN5. 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 commented: “As a premium partner to many major vehicle manufacturers, 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 for Modul-System 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.”
