Maxus (formerly LDV) has opened orders for its eDeliver 9 large electric van, marking its second electric vehicle launch this year.
Providing a range of up to 219 miles, the new eDeliver 9 joins the smaller eDeliver 3 launched this summer and is priced from £55,000 excluding VAT and including the Plug-in Van Grant.
It’s offered in two sizes – a long wheelbase variant with a 11.0m3 cargo volume and a medium wheelbase variant with 9.7m3. The range includes crew cab and minibus models and a chassis variant will arrive in Q2 2021. The range is backed by a network of specialist converters to create bespoke vans to cater for needs, including mobility, refrigeration and specialist cargo.
The eDeliver 9 is rated at 3,500kg and with an optional 4,050kg, with payloads of up to 1,700kg.
It’s powered by a 204hp motor and comes with three battery options to choose from: 51.5kWh, 72kWh and 88.55kWh. Charging in AC mode takes five hours while DC charging can give a change from 5-80% in some 45 minutes.
Mark Barrett, GM of importer Harris Maxus, commented: “Despite its challenges, 2020 has represented a new era for Maxus in which we can offer our customers even more variety in terms of zero-emission commercial vehicles. The eDeliver 9, as the bigger more powerful of our EVs, is the big brother to the eDeliver 3, so our Maxus family is expanding at pace with a chassis variant to arrive in Q2 2021.
“The eDeliver 9, a complete new platform, perfectly illustrates Maxus’ focus on diversification, customisation and reputation. Everything about this van is of superior quality and showcases what we at Maxus are all about. We want to make choosing an electric vehicle as easy as possible for customers, whether they are shopping for one vehicle or an entire fleet for their business. The eDeliver 9 has it all in terms of spec, space and is 100% electric.”
The eDeliver 9 is available to order now and starts deliveries from January 2021.
