London Electric Vehicle Company Limited – UK REEV

No stopping for this consortia as they deliver new models and support the national effort in the fight against Covid-19

Whilst supporting the national demand for ventilators and masks during the Covid-19 pandemic the consortia continued the fight against CO₂. Helping to maximise this response was a series of new virtual engineering processes which have reduced manufacturing waste, increase recycling capabilities and redesigned battery packaging – saving cost and boosting productivity.

Decarbonising light commercial vehicles through zero emission innovation

Project Highlights

  • An exciting new range extended hybrid electric drive-train light commercial vehicle targeting the 1 Tonne payload class.
  • Focused on vehicle design innovation the project also delivered innovative streamlined manufacturing processes.
  • New manufacturing capability meant that major components previously sourced overseas now form part of the UK supply chain.
  • The project helped to embed new skills into the supply to support the delivery of this unique new vehicle structure.
  • Bringing together a UK supply chain which is capable of the design, development and manufacture of zero-emission capable light commercial vehicle from start to finish.
