Maxus, the new name for LDV, has become the first manufacturer to confirm its attendance at Fleet & Mobility Live 2020.
The van maker, owned by Chinese manufacturer SAIC but distributed in the UK by Harris Group of Ireland, will be showcasing its new Deliver 9 Euro 6 diesel large van and E Deliver 3 fully electric small van at what will likely be the public debut for both models.
Mark Barrett, Maxus UK and Ireland general manager, said: “These new models on new platforms meant the timing was right to rebrand as Maxus.
“It’s really important that we have this mix of electric and diesel engines on show at a time where fleets are looking to increase their plug-in vehicle fleet mix, but there will still likely be a split between the two fuel types depending on operational need.”
Barrett said Fleet and Mobility Live is a key opportunity for delegates to learn more about electric vehicles and for the Maxus team to engage with current and prospective customers to hold their hand and guide them through the way the fleet industry is changing towards electric propulsion.
He said: “We will be there to help fleets embrace electric with elements around assessing suitability for electric vehicles as well as how they can manage charging.”
The Deliver 9 will be available in a choice of three lengths, three heights and a choice of front or rear wheel drive. The E Deliver 3 offers range of up to up 168miles (WLTP) on a single charge from its 52.5kWh battery.
