2023 LDV eT60 price and specs: First electric ute lands in Australia

Comments

Key Points

  • Priced at $92,990, its almost double the diesel equivalent
  • FBT and LCT exempt
  • Up to 330km of range and 8-year/160,000km battery warranty

The LDV eT60 is priced from $92,990 before on-road costs or $88,431 drive-away for ABN holders – marking the first new dual-cab electric ute on sale in Australia.

But, given its price tag, it's ineligible for select state government EV incentives – but the fringe benefits tax (FBT) exemption does apply and isn't subject to the luxury car tax (LCT).

The LDV eT60 comes with one variant based on the flagship diesel-powered T60 Max Luxe currently priced at $47,884 drive-away, with a maximum towing capacity of 1000kg braked or 750kg unbraked, and a 1000kg payload.

The 4x2 electric ute offers 330km of claimed driving range (WLTP) from a combined 213Wh/km energy consumption and 88.55kWh battery pack.

The eT60 can be fast charged on up to 80kW DC, going from 20 to 80 per cent in around 45 minutes on a compatible public charger. When on an 11kW AC wall box charger, it takes it from 5 to 100 per cent in around nine hours.

“Australian businesses know the eT60 isn’t going to cross Nullarbor – but that its 330km range is more than adequate for their everyday requirements,” LDV General Manager Dinesh Chinnappa said.

“But they also know government EV policy and EV infrastructure is on the move and they want to be ahead of the transition. And the LDV eT60, Australia’s first electric ute, is here to help.”

The first battery-electric ute sold Down Under packs a single rear-wheel driven permanent magnet synchronous motor producing 130kW of power and 310Nm of torque – but it's top speed is limited to 120km/h.

When unladen, it has 187mm of ground clearance, 27-degree approach angle, 24-degree departure angle, and a maximum wading depth rated at 550mm. Double independent front wishbones and a leaf spring rear calibrated for Australia also feature.

The eT60 carries the same features as its T60 Max Luxe 4x4 donor ute, including a spray-in tub liner, 10.25-inch infotainment system with wired Apple CarPlay only, one 220-volt power socket, leatherette seats, and reverse cameras and sensors.

However, it lacks critical active safety assistance systems like auto emergency braking, blind spot alert and adaptive cruise control as found on most other combustion-engined utes like the Toyota HiLux, Ford Ranger and Mitsubishi Triton.

LDV backs its pure-electric ute with a five-year/160,000km vehicle warranty, eight-year/160,000km battery warranty, and five-year/13,000km roadside assistance.

Unlike its combustion-powered sibling, the eT60 only requires servicing every 24 months/30,000km after the first six-month/5000km scheduled visit.

The EV ute can be serviced at its 90-plus nationwide dealer network.
