LEVC announces new warranty deal

Assurant is partnering with The London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) to provide extended warranty solutions for its electric commercial vehicles.

The new warranty proposition, LEVC One, will provide cover for more than 4,000 LEVC electric TX black cabs and VN5 electric van models on UK roads today, and will closely resemble the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) initial offering.

The Assurant programme will manage the day-to-day claims management, offering its customer service expertise to vehicle owners, and allowing LEVC to focus on its core business activity.

There will also be a significant expansion in the coverage of authorised LEVC dealers and repairers in the UK, with more than 50 locations in the UK alone by the end of this year.

Sean Kent, UK automotive director at Assurant, said: “Electric commercial vehicles are becoming increasingly prevalent, particularly in the UK’s cities where charging infrastructure is being upgraded and incentives for low-emissions vehicles make them incredibly attractive. For black cab and van drivers who have joined the electric revolution, it is important to have a warranty that means they can get their vehicle fixed and back to work if something does go wrong.”

Leighton King, commercial director at LEVC, said: “As we continue to expand our footprint in the UK with greater sales and an expanding dealer network, we want to reassure our customers that we have them covered for any possible eventuality in their relationship with LEVC and their vehicle.”
