MAXUS once again electrified this year’s CV Show with the unveiling of its newest all-electric commercial offering for right hand drive markets – the eDELIVER 7.
Pitted as a medium-sized eLCV, the eDELIVER 7 will bridge the gap between MAXUS’ current eLCV offerings, the smaller eDELIVER 3 and big brother, the eDELIVER 9.
The latest MAXUS eVan offers considerable range, clocking up to 226miles /365km (WLTP combined) on a single charge (88kWh battery).
Available in three size configurations, with a payload of up to 1200kg1, the eDELIVER 7 features a 150kW /330Nm high power, low energy motor with an acceleration time of 0-100km in 11 seconds.
There are two battery options from which to choose: 77kWh and 88kWH

Cargo volume: 8.7m3
DC + AC dual charging mode

The eDELIVER 72 offers three driving modes, Eco, Normal and Power and a one-touch start. Safety features include blind spot detection, lane change assist, AEBS (autonomous emergency braking system), fatigue driving monitoring, plus front and rear parking sensors and 360 degree cameras. A 12.3inch touch screen infotainment system is also included as standard with Apple Carplay & Android Auto available.
Speaking at the launch of the eDELIVER 7, Mark Barrett, Director of Harris MAXUS said: “The CV Show is a key date in the MAXUS calendar. In 2016 we launched our first all-electric commercial vehicle, the EV80, at CV Show. Today marks our fourth vehicle launch at the NEC Birmingham, and our sixth EV vehicle launch in just seven years. In that time, we have positioned ourselves as a market leader when it comes to electric vehicles and the eDELIVER 7 builds on our EV range, securing our position in this regard.
“Our electric vans have proven popular with businesses in the delivery, pharma and grocery/retail sectors, as well as being the number one choice for many local councils that are looking to switch to electric. Our latest addition is pitched at those who need more payload capacity than the eDELIVER 3, but who may not need the full-size capabilities of our eDELIVER 9.”
MAXUS is a subsidiary of SAIC Motor Corp (formerly Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation), a Chinese state-owned vehicle manufacturer, considered one of China’s ‘Big Four’. SAIC is recognised as a global leader in the technical revolution, particularly in terms of battery technology, and has invested £2 billion into innovation in recent years with particular attention given to the MAXUS range of zero-emission vehicles.
MAXUS’ full range of EVs were on display at the CV Show, with the brand offering visitors a pure EV experience for the third consecutive year with 12 zero emission vehicles on the stand, including the eDELIVER 3 and eDELIVER 9 cabin van and chassis variants and an eDELIVER 9 minibus. Also on show were the MAXUS MIFA 9 MPV and the T90EV on-road pickup truck, which launched at the CV Show in 2022.
