Paul Ward, director of Shelbourne Motors, added: “We’re delighted to partner with Maxus (UK) to bring the global car manufacturer’s commercial vehicles to our state-of-art Newry site for drivers and van operators across Northern Ireland.

“Maxus is leading the charge for greener commercial motoring across the UK by introducing a range of highly reliable, efficient, versatile and value for money all-electric commercial vehicles and this has successfully positioned them as a leader in the sector.

“This partnership further strengthens our position as one of Northern Ireland’s leading vehicle retailers and it expands our electric van portfolio to include the Maxus eDeliver 3 and eDeliver 9 models.

“These models are already proving to be extremely popular with local businesses and tradespeople already placing orders as they futureproof their fleet of vehicles aimed at reducing their carbon footprint.”

Shelbourne Motors employs over 170 staff across its dealerships in Portadown and Newry. The Maxus partnership adds to existing Toyota, Renault, Nissan, Kia and Dacia franchises, as well as a used car supermarket, vehicle rental division and valet centre.
