Maxus has launched a new electric commercial van - the Maxus eDELIVER 9.

It is the second all-electric vehicle the company has unveiled this year following the launch of eDELIVER 3 this summer.

It is available to order now for deliveries from January 2021 and is said to offer "outstanding performance, high efficiency and superb reliability in all conditions".

The van can clock up a "remarkable" range of up to 219 miles on a single charge, operating with a high power 150Kwh low energy motor.

It comes with three battery options - 51.5Kwh, 72Kwh and 88.55 Kwh (LH) - with various battery cooling methods which reduce charging time - DC 45mins (5%-80%), as well as extending battery life.

Maxus offers a number variants in the eDELIVER 9 range including crew cab, chassis and minibus models, while a network of specialist converters can also create a bespoke van to cater for all driver and business needs including mobility, refrigeration and specialist cargo.

Prices start from £55,000 ex. VAT with the approval of a government electric vehicle grant, which the company says makes it one of the best value large size all-electric vans on the market.

Mark Barrett, GM of Harris Maxus, commented: “Despite its challenges, 2020 has represented a new era for Maxus 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.”
