LDV eDeliver 7 electric work van details

LDV eDeliver 7 – As businesses look to build sustainable fleets, electric vehicles are required to provide capability, comfort and value in a package that’s both commercially and economically viable.

LDV eDeliver 7 SWB Low Roof charging Welcome to the all-new eDeliver 7, a fully-electric mid-size van from LDV, one of Australia’s leading commercial EV brands.

  • ABN pricing from$59,990^
  • Up to 362km range*; Capped Price Servicing~ available
  • LDV is leading the charge of commercial EV vehicles in Australia

Aimed squarely at sole traders, SMEs, transport companies and corporate fleets who want to reduce their environmental footprint, the eDeliver 7 delivers for Australian businesses thanks to whisper quiet progress, reduced maintenance costs, zero battery impact on cargo space and, critically, price.

“With the all-new eDeliver 7, LDV set out to overcome the challenge of creating a commercially viable electric van for Australia,” says Dinesh Chinnappa, LDV General Manager.

“We have observed the success of aggressively priced, feature-packed passenger EVs that have arrived in the Australian market recently and have worked relentlessly with our partners in China to achieve the same outcome in our next commercial EV.

“The result has outdone even our expectations. In the all-new eDeliver 7, LDV has developed an electric van that can not only challenge the strongest competitors in terms of driving experience, safety, functionality and a commitment to reduced emissions, but do so at a price that reduces the cost of EV entry for businesses across Australia. Put simply, here is a mid-size van that doesn’t cost the earth.”

LDV Electric vehicles

The all-new eDeliver 7 is LDV’s fourth electric vehicle, alongside the eDeliver 9 large van, Australia’s first electric ute, the eT60, and the MIFA 9 electric people mover.

These well-earned EV hard yards have allowed LDV to develop one of the largest EV ready dealer networks in Australia, and nurture firm relationships with companies that are committed to a more sustainable corporate fleet.

Much like its EV siblings, the all-new 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.

LDV eDeliver 7 Design 

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. All are available to order in white, blue or black.

The all-new eDeliver 7 has redefined the boxy appearance of many white vans with its new futuristic face. Its distinctive and design-lead front grille with dusk-sensing LEDs portray the streamlined look of an EV while also serving as the larger air intake required to cool any later ICE variants.

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

LDV eDeliver 7 Powertrains 

All-new eDeliver 7s have strong powertrain capabilities, thanks to batteries built in a joint venture between SAIC and China’s largest battery maker, CATL.

The standard 77kWh battery can achieve a pure electric range of up to 318kms* on the SWB low roof model and will take approximately 8hrs to charge on an 11kW AC home charger (5-100%), or approximately 43mins to charge from 20-80% on a rapid DC charger.**

The extended range 88kWh battery has a WLTP range of up to 362kms* on the low roof model, and will take approximately 9.3hrs to charge on an 11kW AC home charger (5-100%) – or approximately 43mins via a rapid DC charger (20-80%).** 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.

LDV eDeliver 7 Safety

Fleet operators expect and demand a vehicle to meet their needs across a broad spectrum of requirements, and LDV is confident that the all-new eDeliver 7 will meet the needs and expectations of the market.

Standard safety and driver assistance highlights include: Autonomous Emergency Braking; Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go; Front Collision Warning; Emergency Lane Keep Assist and Lane Change Assist; Blind Spot Monitoring; Front & Rear Parking Sensors; and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

A full list of Safety, Security and Driver Assistance details can be found in the specification sheet accompanying this press release.

LDV eDeliver 7 Practicality

The interior cabin of the all-new eDeliver 7 deploys similar design cues from its larger sibling eDeliver 9, with enhanced comfort features including 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” touchscreen display loaded with Apple Car Play and Android Auto.

There are practical improvements at the rear as well. The 90°/180° rear doors can be fixed in place while the vehicle is on an incline to prevent them from being blown shut, and as with all LDV vans, eDeliver 7 comes standard with non-slip rubber flooring, a key safety requirement for fleet owners.

All the footnote crap that the legal people love

*Range figure is based on WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure) static laboratory combined average city and highway cycle test. Figures stated for the purposes of comparison amongst vehicles tested to the same technical procedures only. Actual real world driving results will vary depending on a combination of driving style, type of journey, vehicle configuration, battery age and condition, use of vehicle features (such as heating and air conditioning), as well as operating, environmental and climate conditions. The rated range displayed on the Energy Consumption label affixed to the car is calculated according to the ADR 81/02 NEDC based standard as defined by UNECE R101/01 (rather than the WLTP), so the range displayed on the label is different to that shown here.

**Charging times may vary based on factors including but not limited to charger type and condition, battery temperature, electricity supply, auxiliary consumables (e.g. air-conditioning) and environmental conditions. The time taken for successive rapid charging can take longer if the battery temperature activates the battery safeguarding technology. Please note that using a portable Mode 2 Charger from a regular 3-pin wall socket will not charge your electric vehicle battery at temperatures less than approximately 8 degrees Celsius or higher than approximately 30 degrees Celsius.
