Default SAIC Maxus V80 (LDV)

Shanghai Automotive acquired British manufacturer LDV in 2010. LDV was specializing in the production of vans and light buses. Their most famous product was Maxus van. After the purchase, production facilities of Maxus were shipped to the Wuxi factory of Nanjing Auto. SAIC announced it will start making Maxus vans in China in 2011.

On February 28th Shanghai Auto presented new brand to Chinese media. The MAXUS Datong (meaning big wisdom and smooth in Chinese) is the third self-owned brand for SAIC. The car maker, a partner of General Motors and Volkswagen, said the first Chinese-made Maxus vehicle will be a wide-body van that seats 16 passengers and targeting the mid-to-high end segment. The Maxus will be important in SAIC's overall commercial vehicle strategy. It will be made in SAIC's plant in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, and slated for the market in July this year as well plans for exports.

The SAIC-Maxus V80 van has been officially listed on the China car market. Price starts at 145.800 yuan and ends at 239.800 yuan. SAIC bought Maxus from bankrupt British LDV and set up production in China. In Chinese the brand is called Da Tong (大通).

Engine is a Eco-D 2.5 liter diesel from VM Motori with 100kw, good for a 160km/h top speed. SAIC has plans to bring the Maxus brand back to Europe but not soon, SAIC wants Maxus to succeed in China first.
I heared, that there's a close possibility of manufacturing Maxus in Poland - in Szczecin or Lublin.
