MAXUS launches two new EVs as UK market share shows year on year growth
New all-electric pick-up & MPV set to revolutionise marketplace. More than one in every ten eLCVs registered in past year is a MAXUS*
MAXUS once again electrified the annual CV show in Birmingham, launching two new electric vehicles and showcasing its biggest ever line-up of commercial EVs, copper-fastening its position as one of the most innovative and progressive brands in the eLCV sector.
"The MAXUS brand is synonymous with market-leading commercial electric vehicles, which is a very strong position for a brand that is relatively new but is clearly having a significant impact on the EV marketplace," said Mark Barrett, General Manager of Harris MAXUS.
Between March 2021 and April 2022 there were more than 17,000 eLCVs registered in the UK with MAXUS capturing 11% market share. "EVs accounted for more than 36% of MAXUS registrations over the past 12 months and the growth and interest in EV vans, particularly from the grocery, delivery and pharmaceutical sectors is phenomenal," said Mark Barrett.
"In 2016 we launched our first all-electric commercial vehicle, the EV80, at CV Show. The pace at which technology is changing and at which SAIC is innovating is evidenced by the fact that in just six years, the EV80 has been superseded by two new platform EVs, the eDELIVER 3 and eDELIVER 9. And, today, we are launching two more hotly anticipated EVs for the UK market."
With MAXUS showcasing no fewer than 12 electric vehicles at CV Show 2022, the impressive line-up included the two newest entrants to the UK market, the MAXUS MIFA 9 (MPV) and T90EV pick-up truck, which were unveiled on press day amid much fanfare.
