Maxus concept gets heavy treatment

GAZ Group, owner of LDV, unveiled a new concept vehicle at the recent RAI show in Amsterdam.

The Maxus MX100 (pictured) is designed in conjunction with automotive styling and engineering company UltraMotive and is based on the GAZ Group’s Valday chassis.

The new vehicle has been developed as part of a study to evaluate the opportunities for developing a Maxus of up to 7.5 tonnes for the European market.

Martin Leach, head of LCVs, GAZ Group, said: “We have ambitious growth plans for the Maxus product range in Europe and firmly believe that this includes looking beyond our current weight range of 2.8 to 3.9 tonnes.

“The platform for the MX100 is from the durability-proven Valday, a vehicle that has for many years operated under some of the toughest conditions in the world.”

Target specifications for the new Maxus MX100 include power output of 150bhp and a payload of more than four tonnes.
