LDV Great Giveaway & new EV van to be launched at 2019 Commercial Vehicle Show


EV80 worth more than £60,000 to be won: presentation to take place at CV Show

LDV is gearing up for the 2019 Commercial Vehicle Show where it will showcase its range of zero emissions vehicles, launch a brand new EV for the UK and Irish markets and give away an amazing EV80 worth more than £60,000.

The first electric vehicle launched by LDV was the EV80, which boasts a 200km range on a single charge and, thanks to the high-capacity lithium-ion battery, can be fully charged in less than 90 minutes. It is an outstanding vehicle for city driving and is already being used by delivery and utility companies, together with selected city councils.

Reigning Irish Green Commercial Van of the Year 2019, awarded by Fleet Transport, the EV80 is paving the way in the electric commercial vehicle sector and features the most advanced ‘pure electric power’ system in the world along with digital intelligent CVT, which adjusts the torque and output power of the motor under different conditions to create a smooth driving experience.

The EV80 is one of very few Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) that can currently arrange immediate delivery of a large size EV van, EV panel van, minibus, chassis cab and crew variant, regardless of order number.

LDV is manufactured by SAIC, the largest automotive company in China and distributed in the UK, Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Malta and Cyprus by Harris Automotive Distributors UC t/a LDV UK & Ireland.

Big brother’s little brother

LDV is gearing up for another EV launch this spring, which will excite all those interested in greener motoring and which the Harris Group is putting in the spotlight at CV Show. While details are still under wraps, LDV can reveal that this new van, EV80’s little brother, will be the first model launched by LDV that will be specifically designed and manufactured as a pure-electric van tailored for the UK market and will go on sale in 2020. The launch will take place at 12 noon on Tuesday, 30th April on stand number 5D110 at CV Show.

LDV Great EV80 give-away

To celebrate the growth of the LDV brand across all markets and showcase its green credentials, LDV has launched a competition and is giving away a brand new EV80 panel van worth more than £60,000. The lucky winner will be presented with their prize at CV Show on April 30th and, as part of the give-away, the winner and a guest will enjoy a five-star stay in Birmingham for the show.

To be in with a chance to win, interested parties simply need to check out myldv.co.uk/ldv-ev80-great-give-away and complete a short survey by April 19th.

Alongside its range of Light Commercial Vehicles, the team at LDV will be joined by a number of senior representatives from SAIC Maxus Automotive for what promises to be another action-packed event.

Mark Barrett, General Manager of LDV U.K. & Ireland, is fully committed to driving LDV’s agenda for greener motoring and is confident that switching to electric motoring can future-proof a business: “Investing in one or indeed a fleet of EVs will cut down long-term operational costs for a business, and there has never been a better time to make the change to emission-free fleets thanks to Government grant schemes.”

“Electric powered vehicles are no longer a novelty or a green trophy on the road and will soon become the norm and this is reflected in the number of automotive brands, both in the domestic and commercial markets, that are moving their focus from fuel-dependent engines to hybrids and pure-electric models.”
