Maxus has opened orders for its new eDeliver 9 electric van, with prices starting from £55,000, excluding VAT and including the UK Government’s plug-in van grant.
The new model is Maxus’s second electric van, following the smaller eDeliver 3 which arrived last summer.
The eDeliver 9 comes with a 203hp electric motor, and a choice of three battery sizes – 51.5kWh, 72kWh, and 88.55kWh.
Maxus says an electric driving range of up to 219 miles on a single charge is possible.
An 80% battery charge is said to be possible in 45 minutes using DC charging, while a full battery charge on an AC connection takes five hours.
Two vehicle lengths are available – a medium wheelbase with a cargo volume of 9.7m3, and a long wheelbase version offering 11m3. Payloads are up to 1,700kg.
Available variants include crew cab, chassis and minibus models, and Maxus says a network of specialist converters can create bespoke vans to cater for requirements such as mobility and refrigeration.
Deliveries begin this month.
