LDV’s electric EV80 gets a price cut
LDV has dropped the price of its EV80 electric van by an astonishing $15,000, down from $64,990 to $49,990 plus GST.
According to Great Lake Motor Distributors NZ GM Andrew Bayliss, the price cut is an acknowledgement of the “government’s desire to reduce vehicle emissions and apply a financial incentive to buyers of low and zero-emission vehicles.
“So we’ve decided to front-foot it ourselves and taken positive action in assisting commercial vehicle buyers who want to lower their carbon footprint to beat a potentially lengthy political process.”
The new price puts the EV80 right in line with the likes of the newly-upgraded Hiace and a decent amount cheaper than the Renault Kangoo EV, which starts at $74,990. Bayliss is expecting “strong demand” at the price.
