As new electric vans and cars flood the UK market, the electric pickup sector has been relatively quiet. This is about to change. Now that the Maxus T90EV is set to arrive in the UK, the pickup truck market is finally catching up with the electrification race. Maxus T90EV will be the first zero-emission double cab electric pickup that will be available to lease in the UK, and we are very excited about it.
This battery-powered truck is based on the Chinese T90 double cab pick up, powered by conventional combustion engines. T90's design takes inspiration from the overall pick-up sector, featuring a massive grille and robust detailing that highlights its work-related purpose. The electric T90EV model utilises the same design but the running gear is removed and replaced with an 89kWh battery under the chassis.
Maxus T90EV: what we know so far

Motor & range
T90EV is a rear-wheel drive pick-up, powered by a 201 bhp electric motor. Because the motor is located at the rear axle and hangs down under the truck, the chassis has limited ground clearance. Off-road driving and wading may be more difficult as a result.
As far as battery range is concerned, Maxus T90EV offers a WLTP combined range of 220 miles. Charging this electric pick-up truck from 20% to 80% can be done in just 45 minutes with a DC charger.
Weight & dimensions
With 3,300kg weight, Maxus T90EV measures 5,365mm x 1,900mm x 1,809mm. Dimensions of the cargo bed are 1,510mm x 1,485mm x 530mm. The T90EV double cab model appears to be a pretty standard pickup truck based on those figures.
Payload & towing
According to the Maxus brochure, the T90EV has a payload of 1,000kg, which is exactly the commercial vehicle threshold required by UK law. The initial payload figure was just 740kg, but it looks like Maxus has tweaked the original model to fit the UK market. If you want to lease an electric pickup truck for your business, this is great news.
Towing capacity for the T90EV truck is 1,500kg assuming you're towing a braked trailer.
Maxus T90EV can provide solutions for many uses that no diesel pickup can currently match. Our forecast is that the T90EV all-electric pickup truck will be especially popular among councils and utility companies, as well as groundskeepers.
Interior & equipment
The visually sporty exterior of Maxus T90EV is complemented by a contemporary and stylish interior with a standard 10.25-inch digital touch screen instrument cluster providing a minimalist look. Reversing camera, rain-sensing windscreen wipers, halogen headlight with automatic induction, LED daytime running lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a bed-mounted roll bar are also included in the standard equipment. Due to its neat dashboard design and floor console, the T90EV offers plenty of space for occupants and storage.

Pricing & availability
Pricing for the T90EV will be revealed closer to its launch, but based on Maxus vans, the electric pickup should be keenly priced. Our Maxus T90EV leasing order books are expected to open in August 2022. We anticipate that the first deliveries will take place in January/February 2023.
