LEVC has named Paneltex as an official conversion partner for its VN5 electrified van.
Paneltex is a temperature-controlled van conversion specialist, and has developed a custom solution that allows the VN5 to be chilled and heated from 0-25 degrees.
LEVC says the conversion would be suitable for supermarkets, pharmaceutical companies and catering companies.
The VN5 comes with an electric motor and a range-extender petrol engine.
LEVC CEO Joerg Hofmann said: “We are pleased to welcome Paneltex as an official LEVC conversion partner for our new VN5 electric van. This enables us to offer high quality, flexible and bespoke conversions for customers with a requirement for temperature control.
“Both the food and medical industries are a focus for VN5 and we aim to become a leading vehicle player in these specialist sectors.”?
Paneltex managing director Chris Berridge said: “We are excited to further expand our range of conversions in the electric vehicle sector, by becoming an official converter of the LEVC VN5.
“We feel that our experience with larger electric vehicles and systems, combined with the proven quality of our chilled and frozen van conversions, puts us in a unique position to offer a market-leading temperature-controlled small van.
“The success of the LEVC TX electric taxi gives us a great idea of the capabilities of the VN5 and we are looking forward to converting more of these vans for emissions-free cold chain deliveries.”
