London EV Company (LEVC) has agreed a partnership with EO Charging to supply customers of its electric taxi with smart home charge points.

LEVC owners will be offered an OLEV-approved EO Mini Pro, which qualifies for the Government’s Electric Vehicle Homecharge scheme, reducing the cost of installing a charger by up to 75%.

The partnership follows the launch of LEVC’s first dealership in Glasgow.

Ryan Spillane, head of commercial sales at EO Charging, said: ““Scotland introduced its first low-emission zone (LEZ) in Glasgow last year, a clear indication of the country’s commitment to reducing congestion and improving air quality.

“With plans being drawn up for low-emission zones in Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen – taxi and commercial vehicle drivers need to think carefully about the next vehicle they purchase.

“To support LEVC’s ambitions in Scotland, we’ve developed a network of EO trained and OLEV approved installers that will support new and existing TX owners with the installation of smart electric vehicle chargers.

We’re honoured to be working alongside a fellow British manufacturer and creators of one of the world’s most iconic vehicles.”

Richard Turnbull, head of EV Infrastructure at LEVC, added: “Smart home charging provides our customers with a range of benefits including the ability to schedule charging and take advantage of off-peak energy tariffs, which is especially important to commercial vehicle operators.

“LEVC is delighted to be partnering with EO Charging who will deliver tailored end-to-end smart home charging solutions which meet the needs of LEVC’s valued customers in Scotland.”

To date, EO has secured partnerships with Uber, Addison Lee, Sainsbury’s Online and Gnewt Cargo, operators of London’s largest fully electric final-mile delivery fleet.
