SAIC Motor Corp Ltd, the Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC), is the largest automotive group in China, and is headquartered in Shanghai. SAIC manufactures over 7 million vehicles a year, for both the domestic and international markets. It is a Fortune Global 100 company and markets leading brands, to include: MG, Wuling, Baojun, Maxus, Roewe and Feifan.

Maxus (formerly LDV) was acquired by SAIC in 2010. The automotive behemoth has invested significantly in the development of the brand and its product portfolio since the acquisition. Maxus currently has the following electric vans in its portfolio:

Maxus e Deliver 3 Panel Van

The Maxus e Deliver 3 panel van is available in two EV battery sizes: 35 kWh and 52.5 kWh. The manufacturer claims an electric range up to 99 miles (WLTP) for the smaller 35 kWh EV battery and a range up to 151 miles (WLTP) for the 52.5 kWh EV battery.

Of course, the real-world electric range will be lower, impacted by a number of factors, to include: payload, driving profile, speed, weather conditions, temperature, onboard services used etc. Expect a real-world e-range closer to 80 miles for the 35 kWh EV battery and 130 miles for the 52.5 kWh variant. Without doubt both EV battery sizes offer a useful and practical zero-emission electric range, in particular, for last-mile deliveries.

The manufacturer offers DC charging up to 50 kW DC. At 50 kW DC, the pure electric van can can be charged up to 80% in 45 minutes. Given the size of the onboard EV battery, a charging speed up to 50 kW DC is appropriate. In general, we at e-zoomed recommend never letting the EV battery charge fall below 10%. So best to plan the journey, such that there is always sufficient charge in the battery.

Maxus offers single-phase AC (7.4 kW) onboard charging compatibility. Which is indeed a pity, as most commercial premises in the UK have three-phase power supply (3-phase EV charging is substantially faster compared to 1-phase EV charging!). In any case, using a dedicated single-phase (7.4 kW) EV charger, like easee, the 35 kWh EV battery can be fully charged in 6 hours. The 52.5 kWh will take up to 8 hours to achieve 100% charge. Though the e-van can be charged using a standard 3-PIN domestic plug, we at e-zoomed discourage using a domestic plug to charge an electric vehicle.

In any case, we at e-zoomed encourage a ‘topping up’ approach to charging an electric vehicle (EV). This is beneficial for the long-term maintenance of the onboard EV battery and of course, EV charging times are shorter. Maxus offers a 8 years or 100,000 miles warranty for the EV battery.

The e Deliver 3 panel van is available in one length (4555mm). The electric van offers up to 4.8 m3 cargo volume, with a payload up to 945 kg. The EV offers 2 seats. The manufacturer also offers a host of driving aids and technology, to include: electronic stability control, reversing camera, rear parking sensors, Touch Screen 7 inch, daytime running lamp, cruise control and more!

In terms of performance, the Maxus e Deliver 3 panel van delivers a maximum 255 Nm torque. The top speed is 75 mph. The EV can achieve 0-62 mph in 12 seconds. The electric van also incorporates regenerative braking to improve the efficiency of the EV and increase the electric range. The EV offers three driving modes.

The Maxus e Deliver 3 panel is eligible for the UK government plug-in van grant for the ‘small vans’ category. These vehicles are less than 2,500 kilograms (kg) gross vehicle weight, have CO2 emissions of less than 50g/km and can travel at least 96km (60 miles) zero-emission. The grant will pay for 35% of the purchase price for small vans, up to a maximum of £2,500.

Bottom-line, electric driving is good for the environment and the wallet! You can lease electric vans via e-zoomed at very competitive prices!
