LDV has joined the Government's plug-in vehicle grant scheme, allowing EV80 customers to take advantage of an £8,000 grant.
There are two fully electric models from which to choose, with prices from £60,000. The 3.5-tonne EV80 panel van, which has a payload of almost 1,000Kg, or the chassis cab with a body and payload allowance of around 1,300Kg.
Mark Barrett, general manager of LDV UK and Ireland said: “Since its launch in 2016 we’ve had a fantastic response to the EV80 and now it is part of the Go Ultra Low initiative there has never been a better time for fleet owners to make the switch to plug-in vehicles. Environmentally and financially, electric vehicles are a great investment and when the long-term running costs are combined with the Go Ultra Low grant, purchasing an EV80 offers fantastic value for money.”
Go Ultra Low exists to help UK organisations and motorists understand the benefits, cost savings and capabilities of the raft of electric vehicles on the market. The collaborative campaign is the first of its kind, bringing together a consortium of vehicle manufacturers, Government and the SMMT.
