LDV to rebrand as Maxus in the UK and Ireland in time for the CV Show
Van maker LDV is to rebrand as Maxus in the UK and Ireland from 3 April, coinciding with the launch of two new models.
Mark Barrett, general manager of Maxus UK and Ireland, says: “2020 is going to be the brand’s biggest year ever with the impending launch of our game-changing diesel panel van the Deliver 9, and the arrival to market of MAXUS’ second EV model, the E Deliver 3, which was unveiled last year at the Commercial Vehicle Show.
“With cutting edge design, a brand-new platform and 2-litre engine, the LDV Deliver 9 will be the brand’s most comprehensive and versatile offering to date. Available in a choice of three lengths, three heights and a choice of front- or rear-wheel-drive, this van really is on another level.”
Full details, including spec and pricing, will be revealed at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham 28-30 April.
MAN TGS 26.320 platform with crane - Used Truck of the Day
Our Used Truck of the Day has been found at Dartford-based Joyner Commercial Vehicles who have an MAN TGS platform truck that we rather like the look of.
The 25ft platform is fitted with a Cormach 19500 E3 remote controlled crane which is mounted to the Euro-6 TGS 26.320 chassis. It has a lifting rear axle, air suspension and an automatic gearbox. Also specified is a four-way camera system.
The deck also has twist locks and has come from one owner who has kept it in a very sharp looking condition during the 200,000km it has covered.
