LDV EV30 electric van launched at CV Show
The Chinese-owned commercial-vehicle brand LDV has announced a second electric van for its UK range, joining the larger EV80.
Both short- and long-wheelbase versions, and two different battery capacities, will be available. The cheaper version will have a 35kWh battery returning approximately 125 miles range, while the 53kWh battery will boost that to 200 miles.
The EV30 is front-wheel drive, with a 114bhp electric motor turning the wheels, giving it a top speed of 79mph and a 0-31mph time of five seconds.
Fast charging to 80% capacity will be completed in as little as 45 minutes, while charging from a standard socket will take around five hours.
The short-wheelbase version can take five cubic metres of cargo, with the long-wheelbase model boosting that to just over six. Their respective payloads are 600kg and one tonne.
An exact price for the EV30 has yet to be confirmed, but a starting figure of around £22,000 is expected.
