Hackney Council started operating electric vehicles in 1998. As early adopters in alternative fuel technology they have helped lead the way in serving their community with vehicles that do less damage to the environment than traditional ICE’s.
Norman Harding and his team were therefore a great match for the SAIC MAXUS UK product range with a shared mission to reduce the carbon footprint of vehicles that carry out essential work. The product of choice for the Parks and Green Spaces department was the eDeliver 9.
A fully electric L3H2 panel van, with an 88.5 KW battery capable of a WLTP tested range of 219 miles and a payload of 860Kgs. One of the selling points of these vans for use in Hackney’s 58 public parks was the towing capacity, which is a tremendous 1,500kg braked (750kg unbraked).
To supplement the incredible number of standard options that come with a Maxus eDeliver 9, these vans are kitted out by Advanced Vehicle Alarms with a roof mounted beacon, a white noise reversing buzzer, load area work lamps and an inverter to facilitate the charging of power tools in the cargo area.
We are very proud to be the supplying dealer of these vehicles and with the support of Chris Adams and his team at #Maxus we look forward to working with the London Borough of Hackney and to delivering these vehicles into operation next week.
