Maxus shows off pure electric van range

For the first time, the CV Show in Birmingham showcased an all-electric LCV stand as Maxus delivered an electric experience in England last week, featuring the new platform eDeliver3 and the larger eDeliver9 vans.

A key highlight of this year’s show, visitors could check out nine Maxus EV variants including an eDeliver3 fridge and EV SWB Dropsider (52.5kWh ) in advance of the launch of the new eDeliver3 long wheelbase chassis, which will be available in the UK and Ireland in Q1 2022.

Several eDeliver9 variants were available to view. Launched in June 2020, the eDeliver9 illustrates Maxus’ focus on innovation, customisation, and greener motoring. Everything about this van is of superior quality. Available in two size options, this van offers a remarkable range, clocking up to 219 miles on a single charge and operating with a high power 150KW low energy motor.

The new platform vehicle offers three battery options – 51.5Kwh, 72Kwh and 88.55Kwh (LH ) with various battery cooling methods, which reduce charging time (DC 45 minutes five per cent to 80 per cent ), as well as extending battery life and increasing the operating range.

The eDeliver3, designed from the ground-up for electric power only, is a small van with a big range – up to 210 miles on a single charge. With a 92KW motor, there is a battery option latest generation 52.5kWh. Using a DC rapid charger can top up the batteries to 80 per cent in as little as 40 minutes.

Available in a number of variants and wheelbase options, the eDeliver3 is a versatile vehicle that suits a wide range of business needs. This year’s show display featured a customised refrigerated unit (52.5kWh ), which is proving hugely popular among customers in the grocery and pharmaceutical sectors.

Speaking at the CV Show, Mark Barrett, general manager of Harris Maxus, said EVs were a common sight on roads today, which is why Maxus decided to exclusively showcase a purely electric fleet at this year’s CV Show.

“More than 54 per cent of Maxus sales so far this year are electric and with all eyes firmly on the future of motoring, we wanted to give people the option to explore what electric driving might mean for them during a visit to our stand.

“At Maxus dealerships, we provide business owners and fleet managers with a realistic evaluation of where they are on their journey to greener motoring and what they need to do next.”

He added: “We wanted to bring this service to the CV Show too, so that people can equip themselves with the right information for their business – some may be ready to make the switch, others may need to put policies and infrastructure in place before making the move, and Maxus provides a step-by-step guide to ensure that move is as seamless as possible.”
