DHL StreetScooter showcases new faster charging electric vehicles

DHL

DHL-backed StreetScooter has showcased new versions of its all-electric vehicles.

Called the WORK and WORK L, the two new models offer greater battery capacity, space for four euro pallets and capacity of over a tonne. They allow higher speeds of up to 120 km per hour.

They allow faster charging, meaning the vehicles can reach an 80% charge in approximately five hours.

The vehicles offer automatic emergency calling technology if drivers are involved in accidents, as well as an acoustic vehicle alerting system to warn pedestrians of movement.

The new version of the WORK L will be deployed in China, with modifications to fit the market.

Jörg Sommer, CEO of StreetScooter, said: “Our upgraded electric light commercial vehicles are the ideal operating equipment for environmentally conscious fleet customers.”

“StreetScooter is a well-known ‘early bird’ in the electric light commercial vehicle sector.

“Years of experience and more than 100 million kilometres on the road have shown us what’s important in tough delivery traffic and last-mile logistics. We have incorporated those insights into a new design for our success models, the WORK and WORK L.

“The results speak for themselves: optimal operational equipment for environmentally conscious fleet customers.”
