Gaz shows off first electric LCV

The Gaz Group has shown its first Maxus electric vehicle, which was developed by its UK business, the LDV Group.

The driveable prototype is on test with customers and produces no CO2 emissions and has a top speed of 55mph.
“At the request of major fleet customers, the driver interface has the minimum level of change from a diesel vehicle, so driver retraining is limited to just a few minutes.

"The vehicle is powered by lithium-ion batteries and can also be offered with different options of payload, range and top speed,” said LDV chief executive, Evgeniy Vereshchagin.

“Today has never been a better time for large fleets with urban-based delivery operations to consider electric vehicles.”
