Maxus offers pure electric EV at 2021 CV Show

For the first time ever, the CV Show in Birmingham showcased an all-electric LCV stand as Maxus delivered an electric experience for visitors, featuring the new platform e Deliver 3 and the larger e Deliver 9 models.

A key highlight of this year’s show, visitors could check out nine Maxus EV variants including an e Deliver 3 fridge and EV SWB Dropsider (52.5kWh) in advance of the launch of the all-new e Deliver 3 long wheelbase chassis, which will be available in the UK and Ireland in Q1 2022.

Several e Deliver 9 variants were available to view. Launched in June 2020, the e Deliver 9 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 all-new platform vehicle offers three battery options – 51.5 Kwh, 72 Kwh and 88.55 Kwh (LH) with various battery cooling methods, which reduce charging time (DC 45mins 5%-80%), as well as extending battery life and increasing the operating range.

The e Deliver 3, 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 e Deliver 3 is a fantastically versatile vehicle that suits a wide range of business needs.

This year’s show display featured a customised refrigerated unit (52.5 kWh), 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 are a common sight on our roads today, which is why Maxus decided to exclusively showcase a purely electric fleet at this year’s CV Show.

“Over 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.”
