DHL Streetscooter electric vans will make package delivery greener

[2019.10.09, Wed 10:05] When Deutsche Post DHL Group decided to add electric delivery vans to its fleet, nothing suitable was available. DHL bought a company called Streetscooter, which makes electric vans. Electric vans will be used in a U.S. pilot program for DHL's package delivery service beginning in 2020, according to a company press release. In addition to building vans for DHL's own fleet, Streetscooter sells them to other businesses. Streetscooter isn't the only company selling electric vans. Electric versions of the Nissan NV200 and Renault Kangoo are available in Europe alongside StreetScooter's vans, while Mercedes-Benz has announced plans for an electric version of its Sprinter. In the U.S., Workhorse Group sells electric delivery vans that can be paired with drones, and startup Chanje has promised to join the fray with support from a Chinese manufacturer.
