LDV V80 (16-20) capacity & size

3 out of 5 3.0

The LDV V80 panel van comes in just three versions, split across two wheelbase lengths (SWB and LWB) and three roof heights.

The firm does also offer a number of off-the-shelf conversions based on the chassis cab, however.

LDV V80 dimensions and payload - 2019 facelift, view of load area through rear doors

Each version of the van has a maximum load width of 1,770mm, with 1,380mm between the rear wheelarches.

The rear door entry width is 1,550mm, and the doors themselves fold back up to 255 degrees on long-wheelbase models. All LDV V80s are equipped with a single side door on the passenger side.

Fixtures and fittings inside the load area are rudimentary but look tough. LDV includes easy-clean, non-slip matting in the back, and there is lighting, too.

LDV V80 (16-20) payload, weight & towing

2.5 out of 5 2.5

The LDV V80 is not a van for heavyweight lifters – it better suits small operators who need cheap space rather than outright load capacity.

LDV V80 payload capacity

The maximum payload ratings are as follows:

  • SWB Low Roof: 1,204kg
  • LWB Medium Roof: 1,419kg
  • LWB High Roof: 1,389kg

As for gross vehicle weight (GVW), the SWB model is rated at 3.2 tonnes (3.2t or 3,200kg), while the LWB models are rated at 3.5 tonnes (3.5t or 3,500kg).

LDV also makes an electric version of the V80 called the EV80; this only comes in the LWB Medium Roof panel van configuration, but the weight of the batteries reduces the payload amount to 950kg.

LDV V80 towing capacity

Another area where the V80 is well behind much of the rest of the large van class is towing.

The unbraked towing figure is the usual 750kg, but even with the optional towing pack, the most it can manage is 2,000kg with a braked trailer - without the towing pack it's limited to just 1,200kg.
