With its new 100% electric eDeliver7, Chinese manufacturer Maxus offers an additional mobility solution for companies and public administrations that want to accelerate the decarbonisation of their delivery and transport fleets.

The eDeliver7 is available with a 77 kWh or 88 kWh battery, which enables a WLTP range of 370 km on a single charge. It offers a DC fast-charging capability of up to 80 kW, allowing it to be charged to 80% in just 43 minutes. It also provides for AC charging.

The 150 kW or 204 hp electric motor generates 330 Nm of torque, ensuring solid acceleration and good climbing ability even when fully loaded.

There are three driving modes, Eco, Normal and Power, as well as a push-button start. The driving aids are numerous and include blind spot detection, lane departure warning in the event of an unintended lane change, an emergency braking system with warning and activation when reversing, drowsiness monitoring on the steering wheel, front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera. The steel frame and battery ensure a stable structure and safety in the event of a collision. An infotainment system with a 12.3-inch touchscreen as well as Apple Carplay and Android Auto come as standard.

The eDeliver7 is available in four colours (white, silver, blue, black) and in two lengths: L1H1 and L2H1. The compact version has a wheelbase of 3,000 mm and a load volume of 5.9 m³. The long version with a wheelbase of 3,366 mm offers a load volume of 6.7 m³. Loading is made easier by the large sliding door (990 x 1,200 mm) and the long loading floor (2,547 or 2,913 mm). The first models are scheduled to hit the road in the first quarter of 2024 at a base price of 49,990 euros.

Maxus has not stopped at commercial vehicles. The manufacturer also offers a pick-up called the T90 EV. It has an engine with 177 hp and a torque of 310 Nm. The range is stated as 330 kilometres in the WTLP cycle. In addition to an eight-year warranty, the 89 kWh battery can be charged from 20 to 80 per cent with direct current in 45 minutes. With a three-phase wallbox, you have to reckon with 9 hours from 5 to 100 %. The maximum payload is 925 kg and it is also possible to tow up to one tonne with a braked trailer.

Inside, the seats are electrically adjustable and the seat covers are made of imitation leather. There is a 10.25-inch screen that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can also see what’s happening behind you on this screen thanks to a high-resolution reversing camera. Connectivity options include two USB ports, a 12 V socket and a 220 V socket. This pick-up is available from €54,990 (excluding VAT).
