Amazon has ordered 40 StreetScooter WORK Box electric vans which will be deployed at its distribution center in Munich Daglfing. Complementing the vehicle order, StreetScooter has also installed 60 charging stations at the Amazon site.
“Amazon is committed to achieving the Paris agreement targets ten years ahead of schedule — in 2040 instead of 2050 — so we are collaborating with a number of different partners developing new technologies and helping promote a carbon-neutral economy,” Adam Elman, senior lead of sustainability at Amazon Europe, said in a statement. “We look forward to working with StreetScooter and using their expertise to add additional electric vehicles and charging stations to our network and achieve carbon-neutral delivery operations.”
StreetScooter’s “Made in Germany” e-vans have an ability to handle the heavy demands of last-mile delivery.
According to CEO of StreetScooter Jörg Sommer, StreetScooter performs better in total cost of ownership after just a few years as compared to conventional combustion-engine vehicles.
