LDV has released the all new Deliver 9 bus and cab chassis to complement the Deliver9 range released late last year.

Despite restricted supply and in only in its third full month on sale, the Deliver 9 has already shaken up the large van market, outselling more established brands such as the Renault Master and Volkswagen Crafter (VFacts, Jan 2021 YTD), so the arrival of these bus and cab chassis variants will further broaden its appeal.

“Deliver 9 is all about delivering more for less in the van segment,” says Dinesh Chinnappa, LDV General Manager. “The vans represent outstanding value and don’t compromise on comfort or safety.

“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 boasts an impressive array of features to keep you and your passengers protected. Bosch’s famed electronic stability control, autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning and cruise control help make the shortest – or longest – of drives a breeze.

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 allows passengers to sit back and enjoy the ride, while entry and exit are made easy thanks to the wide central aisle, sliding side door and an electric retractable side step.

Inside, an 8-way adjustable driver’s seat ensures the optimum seating position, while the 4.2-inch LCD display puts important vehicle information at your fingertips; handy steering wheel controls command the 10-inch infotainment system, Apple CarPlayTM 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 to waft driver and passengers along in comfort thanks to its 110kW and 375Nm of torque. With Bosch’s advanced electronically-controlled, common rail direct fuel injection system and automatic stop/start, you can also stay on the road for longer between refuels.

The Deliver 9 cab chassis, meanwhile, shares the same strong engine and safety credentials, adds a 6sp manual option – and an extra dose of flexibility.

With a 2.4 tonne payload and braked towing capacity of 2.8 tonnes, the Deliver 9 Cab Chassis is ready to deliver when you are. Its sturdy ladder frame, 3,760mm wheelbase, 2,094mm width and dual rear wheels for better load carrying ability means it has the ideal base for custom body solutions to suit your lifestyle or business requirements.
