LEVC has appointed Bott as an official authorised converter for its new VN5 range-extender van in the UK and mainland Europe.
Bott will provide bespoke racking solutions, spearheaded by a new system aimed at tradesmen and service technicians. This utilises the Bott Vario3 modular racking system, which makes use of aluminium and plastics to provide a super-lightweight solution; it’s 15% lighter than the previous generation product.
The range was launched in Germany during 2020 and will be launched in the UK in 2021. Until the official launch, the Bott Vario3 product will be available exclusively to LEVC VN5 customers.
The conversion can be enhanced with a range of options, including roof racks, power systems, hazard and task lighting, and load restraint systems.
The main vehicle conversion centre for the Bott Group is located in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, around 35 minutes’ drive from the VN5 manufacturing facility, and VN5 vans can be delivered directly into the centre for conversion before being delivered to an LEVC authorised dealer or to a customer directly.
Joerg Hofmann, LEVC CEO, said: “From logistics and telecommunications to food refrigeration and utilities, VN5 is well suited to a wide range of sectors and I am pleased to welcome the Bott Group as an official LEVC conversion partner. Combined with VN5’s high specification levels, build quality and durability, this collaboration will further enhance the capabilities of VN5 by offering bespoke specialist products to our customers.”
