LDV EV30 electric van review: Quick drive

Here we have a quick look at China's new electric delivery van, with a circa-200km driving range. It hits Europe this year, and will arrive in Australia... At some point.

2018 LDV T60 Luxe 4x4 automatic review: Owner loaner

Australia’s love affair with utes shows no signs of slowing, presenting a prime opportunity for new entrants like the LDV T60 to slot in. While the Chinese brand is far from a household name right now, it could be just one convincing product away from success. Could the T60 be the one?

2018 LDV T60 review

With the local launch of the LDV T60, the Chinese auto giant SAIC is making a big play for Australia's booming ute segment. But is the company's first dual-cab 4x4 good enough to mix it with the established players?

Read the full article here. The LDV G10 van is now available with the option of a turbo-diesel engine in Australia. Kicking off at $28,990 drive-away with the six-speed manual ($31,490 auto), the diesel-powered G10 van represents a $3000 increase over the equivalent manual-equipped petrol model.

Budget van comparison: Citroen Berlingo v LDV G10 v Volkswagen Caddy

Buying an affordable workhorse van can mean some compromises – but depending on if you're willing to take a gamble on an emerging brand, you might not need to sacrifice space for price. As such, we’ve brought two well-known small vans – the Volkswagen Caddy, Australia’s best-selling model in the segment, and the Citroen Berlingo, a go-to second option – and the much larger, but also cheaper, LDV G10...

2019 LDV T60 Trailrider launches with Australian-tuned suspension

The Chinese LDV T60 ute is poised to better handle harsh Australian backroads after joining the growing number of imported vehicles opting for locally-tuned suspension. The LDV T60 has been updated with suspension tuning by Walkinshaw Automotive Group – using the same team of engineers who developed Holden Special Vehicles over the past 30 years, including the HSV SportsCat pick-up...

2021 LDV T60: Macho twin-turbo ute imminent

LDV is making inroads locally with its cheap (but well-equipped) T60 ute, selling a few hundred a month despite supply constraints, but we expect the next iteration due in 2021 to be quite a step up. Indeed, it’s shaping up as a real Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger and Mitsubishi Triton rival in every area bar badge credibility...

LDV plans new compact SUV and large van for Australia

China’s LDV, which has been making some progress in Australia with the T60 dual-cab ute, budget G10 van and (less so) D90 SUV under independent distributor Ateco, is poised for major expansion into various vehicle segments and every variety of electrification...

2018 LDV T60 Pro (4x4) review

Did some research and after careful consideration including looking at used utes, this ute is fantastic and easily the best value for money. Other used utes with 80,000km on the clock and three years older were asking the same price as the LDV, so it was a no brainer. The five-year warranty was also a big incentive and with a $5000 trade in of my rusted out Ford Ranger, I drove it away for $28,000; with an added tow bar...

2017 LDV T60 Pro (4x4) review

Great vehicle – the ride is a little stiff, but smooths a little after a bit of use. It rides better with a load, and when towing I press the power button and it performs as well as the best. The cabin controls are in all the right places. It pays to read the book, as with the new technology it's good to know what the limitations are – such as blind-spot detection etc...

2018 LDV T60 Pro (4x4) review

My name is Sam and I own an LDV T60 Pro manual. I purchased the car to replace my old work vehicle. I’m in the electrical industry and I travel about 1200km per week of mixed driving from job to job, so fuel consumption and reliability are very important to me. The T60 has now got 15,000km since I bought it in January, and so far has proven to be a very reliable addition to my business...

2015 LDV G10 (9 Seat) Review

Value for money, this car is a likely winner. We bought the 9 seat version which comes with leather seats. The configuration of those 9 seats has had our kids occupied. Four of the rear 7 seats are 'captains chairs' and they love them. The rear row is your standard three seat but has the advantage of being a fold up seat to increase luggage area...
