Available in both short- and long-wheelbase versions, the V80 is the only LDV van not available in a people mover variant.
The V80 has an interesting history. First introduced in the UK in 2004, it was developed by LDV in partnership with Daewoo before that company’s acquisition by General Motors.
LDV began producing it in the UK before SAIC Motor bought up the company’s assets in 2010. The V80 is now built in China, as with all other LDV and MG models sold in Australia, and uses an engine sourced from Italian company VM Motori.
