Couriers have access to another electric option with the launch of LDV’s all-new,
bread and butter eDeliver 7.

It joins the larger eDeliver 9 van, as well as LDV’s first electric ute, the eT60, and
MIFA 9 electric people mover.

The Chinese brand claims eDeliver 7 demands no compromise from an operational
perspective and continues to deliver exactly what’s needed from a commercial
vehicle: range, features, price and ease of ownership.

It is aimed at sole traders, SMEs, transport companies and corporate fleets.

Four electric variants make up the eDeliver 7 range: a short wheelbase low roof; long
wheelbase low roof model, available with either 77kWh or 88kWh batteries; and a
long wheelbase high roof available with an 88kWh battery only.

eDeliver 7 is easily identified by its distinctive front EV-style grille with dusk-sensing

LED rear tail lights, rear barn doors with two-stage opening, and a single sliding side
door complete the look.

The standard 77kWh battery can achieve a pure electric range of up to 318km on the
SWB low roof model and will take approximately 8 hours to charge with an 11kW AC
home charger (5-100 per cent), or about 43 minutes to charge from 20-80 per cent
with a rapid DC charger.

The extended range 88kWh battery has a WLTP range of up to 362km on the low
roof model, and will take about 9.3 hours to charge with an 11kW AC home charger
(5-100 per cent) – or about 43 minutes via a rapid DC charger (20-80 per cent).

The battery powers an electric motor that drives the front wheels and delivers 150kW
of power and an instantaneous 330Nm of torque.

The eDeliver 7 also comes with three power modes – Normal, Eco and Power.

Depending on driver requirements, Eco mode can be selected to limit maximum
speed to 90km/h and minimise power consumption when needed.

Standard safety and driver assistance highlights include: autonomous emergency
braking; adaptive cruise control with stop and go; front collision warning; emergency
lane keep assist and lane change assist; blind spot monitoring; front and rear parking
sensors; and rear cross traffic alert.
Enhanced comfort features include a heated steering wheel, fully-adjustable driver’s
seat (height, slide, recline, lumbar support and driver’s armrest), keyless entry-
keyless start, and a 12.3-inch touchscreen display loaded with Apple CarPlay and
Android Auto.

Practical improvements include 90/180 degree rear doors can be fixed in place while
the vehicle is on an incline to prevent them from being blown shut.
eDeliver 7 also comes standard with non-slip rubber flooring, a key safety
requirement for fleet owners.

Cargo volume across the models range from 5.9 cu m in the short wheelbase low
roof, 6.7 cu m in the long-wheelbase low roof model and 8.7 cu m in the long
wheelbase high roof variant.

Each comes with six tie-down points in the cargo area, single sliding door on the
passenger side, and LED rear cargo lighting.

Braked towing capacity is 1500kg.
