LEVC’s new L380 MPV: here are its fancy seats

Looks like a business-class flight, will be available in the UK. Doors to manual and cross check!

Published: 17 Apr 2024

Here are some fancy new seats. They belong not to a fancy new private aircraft, but a new [checks notes] MPV. A new MPV made by [double checks notes] a Chinese company famous for knocking out taxis.

So, welcome to your first look at the interior of the LEVC L380, a car that its maker says marks its transition from “high end taxi manufacturer to a leading provider of e-mobility solutions”.

Because surprise! It’s an electric MPV. It’ll be spun off LEVC parent company Geely’s ‘space orientated architecture’, which one suspects will offer a lot of space. Eight luxury seats worth of space, as it turns out.

Though, we’ve only been shown these initial pictures of the six-seat configuration. Both will apparently blend premium materials and take inspiration from the world of luxury airline travel.

Which means “first class-style chairs” decked out in soft leather, surrounded by a cabin outfitted with Alcantara, chrome and [squints at notes] crystals. Elsewhere in this high-tech cabin, there’s a floating dashboard with a massive panoramic roof, cool air vents and a “meteor shower cabin lighting effect” that apparently “integrates London icons such as Tower Bridge and Big Ben”. Answers on a postcard, please.

Looks great on the outside, you’ll agree. It’ll be available in four colours when it lands in the UK at some point in 2026 – white, black, blue and green – along with some measure of electric performance. No word just yet on the latter, but hey, the seats do look fancy. More as we have it.
