Maxus has announced Euro Commercials as the latest dealer to join its network in the UK.
The South Wales-based commercial vehicle dealer is celebrating its 40th year in business and operates from five different locations in Cardiff, Newport and Swansea. Euro Commercials is best known as a Mercedes-Benz dealer. Several Mercedes dealers have added Maxus to their portfolio in recent years including Rygor and Northside Truck & Van.
Euro Commercial's Cardiff dealership, on the Ipswich Road, will become the centre for Maxus products with sales, servicing and aftersales services to Maxus customers.
The expansion of the Maxus dealer network with the addition of Euro Commercials brings the total number of Maxus dealerships in the UK and Ireland to more than 50.
Maxus has previously stated that it believes a network of around 60 dealerships would be the correct number for the UK and Ireland, and has said that the mix between its dealers with light commercial vehicle experience and heavy duty trucks is a strength of the broadening network.
The Maxus range currently includes the diesel-powered Maxus Delivery 9 as well as electric-only Maxus eDeliver 3 and Maxus eDeliver 9 vans. Maxus has also launched a new electric powered pick-up truck. The Maxus T90EV is the first electric pick-up truck on sale in the UK. It is currently only available as a 4x2 but there are plans for a 4x4 version to be launched in 2024.
Mark Barrett, general manager of Harris Maxus, said: “We are excited to partner with Euro Commercials to bring a new Maxus dealership to Cardiff. Euro Commercials already works with impressive global brands such as Mercedes-Benz and is known for fantastic service and customer care. We look forward to a successful partnership in the years ahead.”
