Ford works with DPDHL Group on Electric Delivery Van

by | 20.08.2017

Deutsche Post subsidiary StreetScooter and Ford are entering a partnership for the manufacturing of battery-electric delivery vehicles. Deutsche Post has already left its mark in the smaller van segment by designing and producing the emission-free StreetScooter, now both partners are working on a larger vehicle type.

The chassis of the Ford Transit provides the technical basis. It will be equipped with a battery-electric drive train and fitted with a special body construction based on Deutsche Post and DHL Paket specifications. Before the end of 2018 at least 2,500 vehicles will support the urban delivery traffic of Deutsche Post DHL Group.

With this volume, the joint project will become the largest manufacturer of battery-electric medium-duty delivery vehicles in Europe.
