MAXUS launches Deliver 9 and e Deliver 3 range

MAXUS has launched its flagship LCV panel van, the Deliver 9 and an all-electric LCV, the e Deliver 3.

The LCVs are the company’s first all-new platform vehicles launched under the MAXUS brand – the company rebranded from LDV in April.

Coming in standard and luxury models, the Deliver 9 is powered by a 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine and 163Ps and 375Nm of torque. All models include electric power steering and autonomous emergency braking, while a manual DPF regeneration button in the diesel range ensures the van runs at optimal levels, even during heavy traffic congestion and daily city driving.

The Deliver 9 has a choice of front or rear-wheel drive, and is available in three lengths: long 5940mm, medium 5546mm and short 5180mm and three heights: extra-high 2755mm, high 2535mm and medium 2385mm.

MAXUS offers several variants in the Deliver 9 range including crew cab, chassis and minibus models, while a network of specialist converters can also create a bespoke van to cater for specific needs.

Its load area has a heavy-duty bulkhead and rear doors that open to 260 degrees for easy loading. Extra features include low rear step, lashing rings, grab handles and an LED illuminated load compartment.

Inside the cab, a touch-screen-enabled infotainment system comes as standard in luxury models, but an option in conventional Deliver 9 models. Apple Car Play and Android Auto is also standard. The high-spec Deliver 9 model also includes features such as mirror link, blind-spot monitors and keyless entry.

Mark Barrett, GM of Harris Automotive Distributors UC (MAXUS/LDV), said: “MAXUS is a brand that is laying down a marker for the future of motoring. Our new flagship LCV, the DELIVER 9… exemplifies MAXUS’ focus on innovation, customisation and reputation. Everything about this van is of superior quality and showcases what we at MAXUS are all about. We want to give everyone a pure driving experience, every time.”

Prices for the Deliver 9 starts from £30,231 ex. VAT for the RWD, long hi-roof and is available to order now for delivery July.

All MAXUS vehicles come with five years warranty or 125,000 miles and include five years roadside assistance cover as standard.

E Deliver 3

MAXUS has also launched its e DELIVER 3, a fully electric small van with zero emissions and a range of up to 198miles (NEDC) or 150 miles combined WLTP on a single charge (52.5kWh battery). 

It has been billed as the little brother to its predecessor, the EV80, but is the first vehicle by MAXUS that is only available as a fully electric model with no other powertrain 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.

Prices start from £30,000 ex. VAT or £22,800 with an approved UK government electric vehicle grant ex. VAT. 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.

MAXUS is distributed by The Harris Group, a long-standing automotive company in Ireland.
