Maxus launches eDeliver7 one-ton electric van

Maxus has filled the gap in its range between the compact eDeliver3 and the large (e)Deliver9 with the eDeliver 7, an electric 1-ton van set to compete with the likes of the Ford E-Transit Custom, Peugeot e-Expert, and the Mercedes eVito.

Maxus, part of the SAIC group along with the new MG, is further expanding its commercial electric vehicle line-up with the eDeliver 7, which was unveiled at the UK’s Commercial Vehicle Show. It carries many of the design elements found on the other models of the Chinese brand but in the shape of a mid-sized van, a popular choice among commercial vehicle customers.

1 200 kg payload

On the practical side, the eDeliver 7 is available in two lengths (L1 or L2) and two heights (H1 or H2), with a cargo volume from 5,9 to 6,7 m³. The payload varies from 1 025 kg to 1 200 kg, depending on the configuration.

Regarding the powertrain, there’s a 150 kW (204 hp) electric motor on the front axle, fed by a battery pack of 77 or 88 kWh, allowing for a maximum range of 363 km, which is very similar to what the Ford E-Transit Custom manages to achieve. Ninety kW fast charging takes the battery back to 80% in 43 minutes.

Pricing has not yet been announced, although the eDeliver 7 is expected to launch in the UK by the summer before making its way to the rest of Europe. A smaller eDeliver 5 is also on the way in the next year or so, which will have a different shape, according to Parkers, which spoke to brand director Mark Barrett.
