DHL and Ford unveil jointly produced electric delivery van

DHL / Ford

In an effort to expand its existing fleet of electric delivery vans, Deutsche Post DHL Group has teamed up with US carmaker Ford and unveiled a jointly manufactured, larger version of the e-van, the "StreetScooter WORK XL". “With this commitment, we are also underlining our claim of being the market leader in green logistics”, said Jürgen Gerdes, member of the Board of Management Post - eCommerce – Parcel, in a press release. Deutsche Post DHL plans to use the vans to support its urban parcel delivery service. The two companies plan to build 2,500 e-vans by the end of 2018, and say that the model could also be sold to third-party customers.
