Electric taxi builder Dynamo Motor Company has released details about its new electric last mile delivery van conversion based on the Maxus E Deliver 3.
The company’s conversion is a short wheelbase version of the compact LCV which features an increased roof height, expanding available cargo space to match that of a long wheelbase version.
It has six cubic meters of capacity and a maximum payload of 860Kg, and adds taller rear doors, to make ingress and egress easier for drivers.
The vehicle still fits in all standard parking bays, measuring 4,555 mm long, 1,780 mm wide and 2,245 mm tall.
Maxus e Deliver 3 has a 52.2kWh battery, giving a range of more than 150 miles, and it can be charged from 0-80% in 45 minutes.
Brendan O’Toole, founder of Dynamo Motor Company, said: “As a company manufacturing clever, zero emission vehicles, our focus has always been how we can help lower our carbon footprint, which is why we developed the Dynamo Taxi, the world’s first all-electric Black Cab.
“However, over the last few years we have seen an increase in inner city pollution and congestion, and we wanted to develop an additional product to our all-electric line-up that would assist in this.
“When we began our research into our next project, we could see a clear demand for last mile delivery vans in cities across the UK. With a focus on energy efficiency at the forefront of our values, we saw a way that we could help ease congestion.
“With one small change to the height of the Maxus e Deliver 3 we were able to dramatically change the way it can be used by delivery drivers, to increase the overall load space by 20% through our own conversion engineering and design.”
