LDV Vans Achieve Gold Rating in 2024 Euro NCAP Commercial Van Ratings banner

We are thrilled to announce that the 2024 Euro NCAP Commercial Van Ratings have been released, featuring the first-ever testing results for both the Diesel and BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) variants of the Deliver 7 and MY24 Deliver 9. The results are outstanding: all LDV (MAXUS) vans have received a GOLD rating under Euro NCAP’s rigorous commercial van testing protocols, known as the “Medal Rating System”.

Euro NCAP’s Medal Rating System

The Medal Rating System assesses Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), or “safety assist” systems, in commercial vans to provide buyers with a comprehensive overview of their real-world performance. This includes evaluations of:

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) for Car-to-Car, Pedestrian, and Cyclist scenarios
  • Lane Support Systems, including Lane Keep Assist (LKA) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
  • Speed Assist Systems
  • Attention Assist
  • Occupant Status Monitoring

Key Highlights

  • Outstanding Results: The 2024 LDV (MAXUS) vans have received a GOLD rating under Euro NCAP’s commercial van testing protocols.
  • ADAS Features: The vans are equipped with state-of-the-art safety features, including AEB, LKA, LDW, and Speed Assist Systems, among others.
  • Market Impact: These results are significant for the MAXUS/LDV brand, enhancing its appeal to major fleet buyers who prioritize the latest safety technology.

Euro NCAP Results and ANCAP Implications

While we celebrate these results, it is important to note that the application of these ratings in the Australian market is at the discretion of ANCAP. Therefore, dealers should refrain from making public statements regarding potential ANCAP ratings until an official announcement is made.

Market Opportunities

The improved safety performance of the Deliver 7 and 9 vans opens new opportunities, especially with government and blue-chip fleets that prioritize vehicle safety for their employees or contracted workers. We encourage all LDV dealers to proactively reach out to larger fleets in your Primary Market Area (PMA) and highlight the advanced safety systems featured in these models. This is a powerful tool to attract more customers to the brand, particularly those who may have previously excluded LDV due to safety concerns.
