could going electric give relevance to maxus? check out the et60 ev pickup

Let’s face it. Maxus hasn’t exactly been setting the commercial vehicle segment on fire since its Philippine launch a few years back. Could introducing a fully electric pickup though change all that.

Maxus (known in Australia as LDV) has just introduced the eT60.

Based off the combustion engine version

, this one swaps its 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine for a permanent magnet synchronous motor delivering 177 horsepower and 310 Nm of torque. This drives the rear wheels solely and offers regenerative braking tech. Together with a CATL-sourced 88.55 kWh lithium-ion battery, it maxes out at 330 kilometers of range per full charge.

Using a 11-kW wall box, a full charge takes about 9 hours, while DC fast charging takes about 45 minutes from 20 to 80 percent.

The eT60 rides on 17-inch alloy wheels and features a heavy-duty suspension giving it a maximum braked towing capacity of 1,000 kilograms and a payload capacity of 1,000 kilograms too.

Outside, there’s nothing to set the eT60 apart from its combustion engine-powered siblings. Inside, it manages to get the same sort of features—6-way power adjustable driver’s seat, a 10.25-inch infotainment system, and rain-sensing wipers, but exclusive to this version is a rotary-style shifter.

For safety, the eT60 comes with a full gamut of airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, hill start assist, hill descent control, and even roll mitigation.

Being an EV, the Maxus eT60 isn’t cheap. It’s priced at AUD 92,990 (P 3.52 million). Still, there are some savings to be had in the form of once in every two years (24 months) service or 30,000 kilometers whichever comes first.

The eT60 will be offered first to large corporate entities, fleet businesses, and government use.
