Black cab manufacturer LEVC has announced EO Charging as its official electric vehicle (EV) charging partner in Scotland.
Owners of LEVC's latest TX taxi - a range-extender EV - will be offered an EO Mini Pro charger for home use.
The partnership follows the opening of LEVC's first dealership in Glasgow, with 65 TXs currently operating in Scotland.
LEVC head of EV infrastructure Richard Turnbull said: "Smart home charging provides our customers with a range of benefits including the ability to schedule charging and take advantage of off-peak energy tariffs, which is especially important to commercial vehicle operators.
"LEVC is delighted to be partnering with EO Charging who will deliver tailored end to end smart home charging solutions which meet the needs of LEVC's valued customers in Scotland."
EO Charging head of commercial sales Ryan Spillane said: "Scotland introduced its first low-emission zone in Glasgow last year, a clear indication of the country's commitment to reducing congestion and improving air quality.
"With plans being drawn up for low-emission zones in Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen, taxi and commercial vehicle drivers need to think carefully about the next vehicle they purchase.
"To support LEVC's ambitions in Scotland, we've developed a network of EO-trained and OLEV-approved installers that will support new and existing TX owners with the installation of smart electric vehicle chargers.
"We're honoured to be working alongside a fellow British manufacturer and creators of one of the world's most iconic vehicles."
