First prototype of LEVC’s new L380 luxury MPV rolls off China assembly line

LONDON: Geely-owned LEVC marks a major milestone in its history with the start of production of its L380 Multi-Purpose Vehicle (MPV), the first of a new range of innovative, spacious, fully electric models, which will see the brand accelerate its transition from a high-end taxi manufacturer to a leading provider of e-mobility solutions.

Following the recent launch of the state-of-the-art EV platform – Space Oriented Architecture (SOA), which was co-developed with the Geely Holding Group – the L380 is the first model that will be underpinned by this revolutionary technology.

The platform will broaden LEVC’s vehicle line-up, with new products that offer advances in range, efficiency, safety, charging time, durability, and connectivity.


The first L380 prototype rolled off the assembly line on Thursday in Yiwu, China, where LEVC China’s manufacturing operations will be based, following significant investment at the site.

The plant will sit alongside the company’s state-of-the-art factory in Ansty, Coventry.


Following start of production this week, the L380 will initially launch in China, with the MPV set to arrive in the UK within the next two years.

The L380 offers multiple seating configurations, available in a three, six or eight-seat layout. More details will follow in the coming months.
