The electric vehicle revolution is well underway and sales of EVs are accelerating with an estimated 2 million on the world’s roads today.

With China leading the charge in low and zero emission vehicles, it was an evolution rather than a revolution when SAIC, the largest automotive company in China announced the launch of its EV80, which came hot on the heels of the relaunch of the LDV brand to the UK and Irish markets.

For drivers keen to try out LDV’s EV offering, the EV80 is now available to order in the UK and is the perfect city or short to medium journey vehicle, boasting a 130 mile range on a single charge.

The high spec includes an advanced pure electric power system providing a highly efficient, stable power supply and an EPB system that is not only convenient, but reliable.

The new EV80 is available in two models; panel van (short and long wheel base) and chassis cab that can be fitted with a range of customer-specific bodies for the ultimate driving experience. From the electronic Park Brake assist system with a helpful vehicle hill start facility to the digital intelligent CVT that switches across three power modes, the EV80 delivers a reliable and smooth driving experience with zero emissions and that, says SAIC, is greener motoring with superior performance in mind.
