- Deliver 9 is Australia’s #1 large van
- LDV hits records sales in 2022 with 16,269 units
- LDV cements position as a leading commercial vehicle brand
Sydney, Australia – 25 January 2023
LDV has established itself as a key player in the commercial vehicle space and looks set to continue its growth in 2023.
Having seen the LDV Deliver 9 hit the number one spot in the large van segment – up a massive 61.2% in 2022 to secure 2,966 sales – the G10 (3,159 units) and V80 (562) went on to secure second place in the 2.5-3.5-tonne van segment with a combined 16.1% segment share.
In a market that grew by just 3.0% in 2022, LDV more than doubled the market growth at 7.1% to secure a record 16,269 vehicles sold, despite major supply constraints across its range.
The recent launch of the eDeliver 9 for greener urban logistics, and the arrival of Australia’s first electric ute, the eT60, lay further foundations for continued LDV growth as the nation begins the transition to greener transport solutions.
LDV is also well-positioned in the fleet space, with a number of commercial deals with Australia’s leading corporate fleets including Better Telco Solutions, Couriers Please, Aramex, Toll and Europcar.
2023 will also see the arrival of a dynamic new mid-size van in both ICE and EV engine variants and three roof options. Scheduled for launch in Q4, it’s expected this vehicle will have the same impact in its respective segment as the well-received LDV Deliver 9.
Further information on this upcoming vehicle will be communicated in due course.
“The Deliver 9 is a clear example of what the LDV brand is capable of achieving,” says Dinesh Chinnappa, LDV General Manager.
“To take leadership in just two years requires a dedicated dealer network, outstanding product and a great value proposition. We believe that our future new product roll-out will be equally successful.
“To that end, we expect our new mid-size van will replicate the success of the Deliver 9 and shake up its respective segment, too.”
