Coventry-headquartered LEVC has launched into the Austrian market with the appointment of Grünzweig Automobil as a partner. The dealership is based near Austria’s capital city of Vienna and will offer full sales and service support for LEVC’s product range.

“Growing our presence in Europe is a major focus of LEVC’s export strategy and I’m pleased to add another important new market to our network with the appointment of Grünzweig Automobil in Austria. There is increasing demand for TX shuttle in European cities and a clear sales opportunity for our new VN5 electric van and we plan to have more than 50 dealer locations in place across Europe by the end of 2021​,” said Joerg Hofmann, LEVC chief executive.

“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,” added Andreas Grünzweig, managing director of Grünzweig Automobil.

“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.”

With 19 dealer partners already in place, the expansion of LEVC’s footprint in Europe continues across continental Europe this year, with further network growth planned for the dealership in markets including Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Spain, Greece and Italy.
