LEVC has announced racking manufacturer Modul-System as its first official conversion partner for its new VN5 electrified van.

Modul-System has already provided conversions for LEVC’s VN5 prototype fleet of converted TX taxis, which are being operated by firms including DPD, Royal Mail, and BT Group.

The announcement comes in the same month that VN5 production starts at LEVC’s factory in Ansty, Coventry.

LEVC CEO Joerg Hofmann said: “We are pleased to announce Modul-System as our first official conversion partner for the VN5.

“Recognised as one of the most reputable converters and manufacturers of custom racking, Modul-System will create bespoke solutions for the VN5, tailoring the vehicle to the specific needs and requirements of our customers.

“From logistics and telecommunications to food refrigeration and utilities, the VN5 is well suited to a wide range of sectors.”

Modul-System UK managing director Paul Railston said: “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 of our conversion solution for the VN5.

“This was a great opportunity for Modul-System and a journey we really enjoyed being part of.

“The 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.”
