Following the January launch of the Deliver 9 van, the range is being further bolstered with the arrival of the all-new Deliver 9 bus and cab chassis.
Despite restricted supply and in only in its third full month on sale, the Deliver 9 has outperformed some notable competitors in the large van market.
The arrival of the bus and cab chassis variants are expected to broaden its appeal according to Dinesh Chinnappa, LDV General Manager.
“Deliver 9 is all about delivering more for less in the van segment,” he said in a statement.
“The vans represent outstanding value and don’t compromise on comfort or safety,” said Chinnappa.
“The all-new Deliver 9 bus and cab chassis are engineered to do exactly the same – deliver more for less, but this time with added flexibility to help serve your business better. The range is now formidable in every way, and we expect to shake things up in their respective segments.”
The Deliver 9 Bus has everything needed to move people. Available in mid- and long-wheelbase, with mid- or high-roof versions, there are 11- or 14-seat configurations (including driver) available.
With a focus on safety, the Deliver 9 Bus comes replete with an array of features including Bosch’s famed electronic stability control, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning and cruise control.
Six airbags in the front row, including curtain airbags, and three-point seat belts throughout keep the driver and passengers protected.
Separate rear air conditioning can be deployed to offer premium passenger comfort.
Meanwhile entry and exit have been a major consideration in the design with a wide central aisle, sliding side door and an electric retractable side step.
Inside, an 8-way adjustable driver’s seat is complemented by a 4.2-inch LCD display and steering wheel controls command the 10-inch infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth connectivity.
Utilising the robust 2.0-litre, single-scroll turbodiesel engine and 6-speed automatic transmission, the Deliver 9 has plenty of grunt thanks to its 110kW and 375Nm of torque. With Bosch’s advanced electronically-controlled, common rail direct fuel injection system and automatic stop/start, operators can expect to stay on the road for longer between refuels.
The Deliver 9 cab chassis, meanwhile, shares the same engine and safety credentials, adding a 6-speed manual option for extra on site flexibility.
A 2.4 tonne payload justifies a braked towing capacity of 2.8 tonnes with a sturdy ladder frame, 3,760mm wheelbase, 2,094mm width and dual rear wheels for better load carrying ability.
The all-new LDV Deliver 9 bus and cab chassis come with a comprehensive, factory-backed 3- year/160,000km (whichever occurs first) warranty, while the capped pricing for scheduled services up to 3 years or 95,000 kms (whichever occurs first), gives complete peace of mind.
