Design & Styling

The Maxus eDeliver 3 features a clean, modern design well-suited to inner-city driving and errands. The front end is dominated by Maxus' signature closed-off grille with crisp LED headlights on either side. It has sliding side doors (available on one or both sides) for easy access to the cargo area. At the rear, twin-opening 60:40 split doors allow for easy loading and unloading.

Its compact 4.5-metre length allows easy manoeuvrability and parking in tight urban spots. Ground clearance is excellent at 185mm height, while the turning circle is just 5.87 metres, helping make light work of any job. With its carefully optimised dimensions, the eDeliver 3 combines a striking, aerodynamic presence with a hugely practical, driver-focused design ethos perfectly suited to the urban jungle.

Battery, Range & Charging

Maxus has made the eDeliver 3 van available with a smaller 35kWh battery pack, or a more powerful 52.5kWh battery that provides a maximum driving range of 213 miles on a single charge, although according to WLTP testing, the real-world range is closer to 112 miles. As standard, Maxus offers an 8-year or 100,000-mile warranty for added peace of mind. 

The eDeliver 3 van supports both AC and DC fast charging - on an AC unit, the charging time is 6 hours for a full battery charge, or connected to a DC charger, expect a fast-charge top-up of up to 80% in just 45 minutes. These charging times are very competitive for a commercial electric van.

Performance & Driving

Power comes from a 90kW electric motor driving the front wheels to enable a top speed of 75 mph, while 0-31mph takes a sprightly 5 seconds - useful for quick deliveries in urban traffic. Four driving modes adapt the van to weather and road conditions - choose between eco, normal, wet, and winter.

Regenerative braking recovers energy when decelerating and extends the driving range which can make a big difference around town. The Power Steering System adjusts the power assistance depending on speed, making low-speed maneuvering easy for drivers. Compared to diesel vans, the all-electric eDeliver 3 is much quieter, simply emitting a soft whirr when driving.

The electric motor delivers smooth, linear acceleration well-suited to stop-start urban duty journeys. Rapid and responsive acceleration aids in weaving through city traffic, whereas useable instant torque combines with exceptional energy efficiency for low running costs - ideal when fuel costs are at an all-time high.

Interior & Technology

The Maxus eDeliver 3 really shines inside, with an incredibly spacious cargo area thanks to the compact electric drivetrain. Load volume is an impressive 4.8 cubic metres that can carry up to 865kg, aided by a low load lip for extra convenient access. 

Inside, the eDeliver 3 model boasts a high-tech interior that doubles up as a mobile office. Functionality meets comfort where you can benefit from the best of both worlds. Designed to be driver-centric, all the controls are within easy reach so you can keep your eyes on the road at all times.  

The cab layout features Maxus' latest connectivity and infotainment features. The dashboard includes a 10-inch touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple Carplay compatibility, parking sensors, and a reversing camera. An intuitive Maxus Deliver 3 app offers fleet management integration capabilities too.
