Maxus launches zero-emission e DELIVER 3 electric van


Maxus, formerly LDV, has launched the e Deliver 3 - a fully electric small van with a 198 mile range (NEDC or 150 miles WLTP).  

Distributed by The Harris Group, the Maxus e Deliver 3 is the first vehicle by Maxus that is only available as a fully electric model with no other power train options.

The Maxus e Deliver 3 is available in three variants with two wheelbase options: a short wheelbase panel van, a long wheelbase panel van and a long wheelbase platform chassis.

There are two battery options: 35kWh and 52.5kWH.

The width of the compartment is 1665mm. The cargo area offers optimal ease of loading with the short wheelbase for the van of 4.8 cubic metres and the long wheelbase of 6.3 cubic metres.

Prices start from £30,000 ex. VAT (£22,800 with the plug-in grant, ex. VAT), making it one of the best value all-electric vans on the market.

The e DELIVER 3 is available to order now for July delivery in the short wheelbase; the platform chassis will be available in Q3 2020 and the long wheelbase panel van will be available in Q4 2020.

Mark Barrett, GM of Harris Automotive Distributors UC (Maxus/LDV), commented: “2020 has heralded the start of a new era in which we can offer our customers even more variety in terms of zero emission commercial vehicles.  The e Deliver 3 marks our entrance into the small commercial vehicle market and is the first van in the MAXUS portfolio that will not offer a diesel engine alternative.

“For MAXUS, this is proof that green motoring is the future, and the future is now. As part of our commitment to a green motoring industry, we work hard to ensure the right support infrastructure is in place for both current and future customers.

“Charging points are the key to supporting EV drivers, and without those supports in place, there can be no motoring revolution. It’s something we take very seriously and urge governments to prioritise in the coming months and years, especially as 2030 targets loom closer.

“We’re extremely proud to be in a position to bring you the e Deliver 3 today and despite current economic challenges, we believe this to be MAXUS’ year. This is down to our dedicated team, the right partners and a confidence in our new platform vehicles that remains unshaken.”

The e Deliver 3 was formerly known as the EV30 prior to the Maxus re-brand.
