Visitors to CV Show were treated to a sneak preview of the all-new chassis cab variant and its many high spec features.

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. Almost 50% 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. 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.”
MAXUS EXPANDS DEALERSHIP NETWORK
In other positive news, MAXUS has increased its network of dealerships in the UK this year by 40%, with almost 41 dealerships now located around the UK – and growing (50 including service dealers). Our target is to get to 80 service points.
Part of the MAXUS promise is to always go the extra mile for customers and each of the new dealerships was selected on the basis that it can provide a full three-sixty degree offering to customers. As a brand, MAXUS is aware of how important after sales is to its customers, that’s why MAXUS’ five-year service commitment is a crucial component of the brand’s offering. Promising a five-year or 60K miles on the full vehicle EV van warranty (eight years or 100K miles warranty on the battery) and five-year roadside assist as standard, drivers are covered 24/7, 365 days a year, with dealer workshops operating a 24-hour service, helping to minimise vehicle downtime and giving drivers complete peace of mind.
Speaking about the new dealerships joining the MAXUS family, Mark Barrett said: “The calibre of dealers joining our network is a clear indication of the appeal of the MAXUS brand and the confidence in the commercial market right now. Underpinning its appeal is a multi-billion investment from SAIC and MAXUS entered a new era in motoring when it rebranded last June and launched the e DELIVER 3 and e DELIVER 9.
“It’s clear that the LCV market is now recognising just how advanced MAXUS truly is and we are delighted to have welcomed so many well-known names to our network over the past 12 months.”
