Deutsche Post Electric Delivery Van in 2017

Post by LockH » Aug 18 2016 1:08pm

Deutsche Post, known globally as DHL, is one of the world’s largest parcel delivery services. As part of its long term business plan, it has developed three zero emissions vehicles — an electric delivery van, an electric trike, and an electric bicycle — tailored to what is called the “last mile” sector of the distribution network.

Mmmm... ice cream. Mmmm....

"On Friday, a spokesman for the company announced that deliveries would begin in 2017. “We want to start sales to third parties from next year,” he told German news magazine Der Spiegel."

So. First "eco-friendly" ice cream truck in Desert Pacific Cali USA. Mmmm.... 8)

Many of the streets in the older sections of European cities are very narrow, so these delivery options are very effective...even though they may also be viewed as progressive (going to an electric vehicle).

Here's an article I found from 2013 (*chuckles)

These ones are all around here.
It has a brushed front hub motor from Heinzmann, very loud but extreme durable
with its metal gears.
Never seen the new ones on the second picture.
