LDV New Zealand is proud to announce it is the official vehicle partner of the 2024 CONZTRUCT event series, New Zealand’s largest travelling trade show for the building and construction industry.

As part of the partnership, LDV are giving every CONZTRUCT attendee a chance to go in the draw to win the CONZTRUCT LDV T60 ute, fitted with a canopy*. 

In addition, the limited edition LDV T60 TRAVERSE ute will make its debut at the opening CONZTRUCT event in Rotorua today and will be on display throughout the event series. 

Attracting thousands of builders, electricians, plumbers, architects, designers, and other trade professionals, CONZTRUCT runs from June to November and is one of New Zealand’s most respected trade events. Entry is free to the sixteen shows hosted in different locations around New Zealand, from Whangarei down to Invercargill.

LDV New Zealand’s General Manager, Kym Mellow says CONZTRUCT is the perfect partnership for commercial vehicle brand LDV.

“LDV offers New Zealand’s largest range of commercial vehicles to keep Kiwi businesses moving. CONZTRUCT provides an opportunity for the LDV team to interact with potential customers such as trade professionals, electricians and architects who have a need for practical vehicles.”

“Our LDV range is the perfect fit for the building and construction industry – we have a model to match every trade. From the world-class T60 bi-turbo double-cab ute to our hard-working petrol and diesel G10 cargo van and Deliver 9 van, plus our BEV (battery electric vehicle) versions of the eDeliver 3 and eDeliver 9, LDV offers fit for purpose vehicles for the bulk of CONZTRUCT’s attendees. We can also assist with customising vehicles to suit your needs,” Mellow says.

“The T60 ute that one lucky CONZTRUCT attendee will win, is the ultimate work horse, providing equal power and comfort to get the job done. We will also have LDV vans and utes on display at each CONZTRUCT location for show attendees to explore. The LDV team will be on hand to answer any questions and to help you understand how LDV can assist with your business vehicle needs,” Mellow adds.

CONZTRUCT will also see the first public reveal of the all-new limited edition LDV T60 TRAVERSE.  The CONZTRUCT event in Rotorua today will see it’s debut with the TRAVERSE on display throughout the remainder of the series at events nationwide.

Only 150 LDV T60 TRAVERSE limited edition utes will be available in New Zealand and this rugged, capable vehicle is inspired by the intrepid nature of the infamous central North Island track, the 42 Traverse. Running through the Tongariro Forest Conservation Area, the Traverse is known as one of the best but most challenging multi-use tracks in the North Island. This wilderness mountain bike ride, tramping track and summer-access-only 4WD track follows old logging routes through a spectacular valley and amidst regenerating native bush with epic views of the volcanoes.

The tough LDV T60 TRAVERSE has many synergies with this track, which alternates between thrilling downhills and demanding climbs. Equipped with 160kW of power and 480Nm of torque, a bullbar, roof-mounted platform, DTM wheels, all terrain tyres and even a snorkel, it is robustly built to handle the tricky rutted sections that adventurers encounter on the 42 Traverse.

The LDV T60 TRAVERSE colour range is Grey, Black and White.

LDV T60 TRAVERSE features include:

  • The VRS Metro Bullbar – a simple design to compliment the look of your LDV T60 TRAVERSE whilst providing frontal protection. 
  • Lustre Protection Film provides an eye-catching visual look and unparalleled exterior shield against the elements. 
  •        TJM snorkel.
  • The Titan tray has functional features and outstanding load-carrying capacity, making it one of the best flat trays available.
  • DTM wheels.
  • All terrain tyres.
  • Weather shields provide practical and stylish protection from the elements for you and your vehicle.
  • Bonnet protector provides practical and stylish protection from stones and road debris.

The T60 TRAVERSE will also be on display this week at the Fieldays at Mystery Creek where full pricing and specification details will be revealed. 

Ian Watt, General Manager of The CMS Group, the parent company behind CONZTRUCT welcomes LDV New Zealand on-board as a partner for this much-loved event, which is now in its ninth year.

“CMS very much values the relationship with LDV and is pleased to be working with a quality brand that is committed to growing its exposure in the building and construction industries.”
