Maxus eDeliver 9 welfare van

VMS Fleet Management and Clarks Vehicle Conversions have unveiled the new Maxus eDeliver 9 welfare van.

The new generation vehicle will be joining VMS Fleet Management’s contract hire fleet to assist various VMS clients.

The Maxus eDeliver 9 vehicle was supplied to VMS Fleet Management by MAR Vehicle Solutions before heading to Clarks Vehicle Conversions to be N2 Type Approved under the GB National Approval scheme.

The welfare van includes standard welfare features including a microwave, water boiler, dining table/desk, interior lighting, bathroom, solar power set up supporting a lithium welfare system - charging when the vehicle charges, access points to vehicle and power elements, accommodates up to 7x100kg of people, plus additional 250kg of weight.

The van also has the layout and capability for traditional highway work.

The vehicle on test has a WLTP range of 185 miles and a maximum range of up to 212 miles on a single charge dependent on route topography, load and driving style, said VMS.

Martin James, managing director of VMS Fleet Management, said: “After months of working closely with our partners Clarks Vehicles Conversions, I am so proud to say that we can unveil the UK’s first Maxus eDeliver 9 welfare van. Huge thanks to MAR Vehicle Solutions for helping us secure this vehicle so that we could transform it for our clients to utilise in the future.

“The Maxus eDeliver 9 is an innovative, low emission vehicle and converting this into a Welfare Van has extended its use across various sectors. We’re glad to be able to add this innovative vehicle to our contract hire fleet for customers from all different industries to enjoy in the future.”

VMS said it has invested in its EV fleet as the business is looking to aid customers in making the decision to transition to electric and become more sustainable.

David Chilvers, head of sales at Clarks Vehicle Conversions, said: “The Mauxs e-Deliver 9 is an ideal option for the EV welfare market and the advances we’ve made to the vehicle build show how the industry is changing and moving forward.”
