LDV eT60 @ $93,000


Interesting the LDV eT60 @ $93,000 is a fit for a tradie or grey nomad ?

The eT60 is based on a regular T60 Max Pro, which costs $43,148 for private buyers when paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The Pro trim level is the entry-point to the T60 model range and unlike more expensive Luxe versions, it has more of a workhorse focus and features heavier-duty suspension.

The LDV eT60 4x2 dual-cab features an 88.5kWh lithium-ion battery, giving the electric ute a WLTP-rated driving range of 330 kilometres.

The LDV eT60 has a 1000 kilogram braked towing capacity  a third of the diesel T60's. Its 1000kg payload, however is actually higher than the regular range which is rated at 750kg for the flagship Luxe and 935kg for the entry-level Pro.

They are getting better for sure, but I have heard stories about rust problems. I think you would have to do your home work before you bought one All vehicles are getting more expensive all of a sudden.

I still wouldn't buy any thing that runs on battery at the moment. Maybe in years to come they will be better.

 Or mine, but the new car salesman from NSW wants us all driving them.

Like most of the car industry drop kicks their all falling for the BS.

There not an Electric Ute or truck fit for purpose in Australia, will a road train hauling freight in outback Australia pulling 3 trailers, will have to one of the 3 trailers for the battery therefore the 3rd of it load is lost that makes the other 2/3rds freight dearer. Even with the of 40 tonne of batteries it still wont be able to travel 2000 km.

 And as well at least once a week on a Qld news service we see an MP telling us all how Qld have jumped onto the new EV ute but in the next breath just a few days ago how the government is offering a subsidy to purchase the yet to be accepted Chinese ute.

Irony hangs out like dogs watsees, they want the mining industry to buy these utes to boost numbers all while they are telling us that we shouldnt be mining.

Hypocrisy at its best.

  Couple of great posts above, but way too much logic for the sheep to understand. 

EVs are the con-job of the century but I fear that the price of diesel will be inflated, in an effort to beat some of us into submission. 

On TV tonight there was reference to charging stations all over Australa, but the queues of vehicles waiting to re-charge would be over the horizon, given the time needed to charge one vehicle. And with the planned closure of coal-fired power stations where's all this electricity coming from? Cheers

Remember when they brought in a 4 cent per liter levy on petrol to offset the cost of changing from leaded to unleaded?

Anyone remember that levy being removed?

Or the 3 X 3 levy by NSW - Brough tin by the "Minister for signs" (Laurie Brereton).
