STREETSCOOTER PROVIDES ELECTRIC VANS AND CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE FOR AMAZON
Press Release: Aachen/Munich, 01/15/2020
- Aachen-based manufacturer of electric commercial vehicles partners with Amazon, delivering 40 StreetScooter WORK Box vans and 60 charging stations
- Vans will be deployed for last-mile delivery to customers in Munich
After Amazon ordered 40 StreetScooter WORK Box electric vans and 60 charging stations for its distribution center in Munich Daglfing, StreetScooter wasted no time installing the charging stations at the distribution center and delivering the vehicles – right on time for Amazon’s peak holiday season.
“We were very pleased to have Amazon turn to StreetScooter for a climate-friendly delivery solution as well as for our proven charging infrastructure expertise,” said Jörg Sommer, CEO of StreetScooter GmbH.
“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,” explained Adam Elman, Senior Lead Sustainability, Amazon Europe. “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 not only proved their ability to handle the heavy demands of last-mile delivery, but scored points for economy and ROI as well. According to Sommer, StreetScooter performs better in total cost of ownership after just a few years as compared to conventional combustion-engine vehicles.
