10,000 StreetScooter electric delivery vehicles now in service

Andreas Pinkwart, the Economics Minister of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, and Tobias Meyer, the Board of Management member who oversees Post & Parcel Germany, presented the 10,000th StreetScooter that will be used in DHL’s parcel-delivery operations at an event in Cologne.


The DHL Group’s e-fleet has now traveled more than 100 million kilometers, saving 36,000 tons of CO2 each year in the process.


The StreetScooter fleet is complemented by 12,000 e-bikes and e-trikes. Deutsche Post DHL Group has also installed about 13,500 charging stations at its depots and delivery bases.


By comparison: Germany currently has merely 20,650 public and semi-public charging points across the country, according to the Bundesverbandes der Energie- und Wasserwirtschaft (BDEW - the German association of energy and water industries). As a result, Deutsche Post is the largest private operator of a charging network in the country.



It makes a lot of sense to electrify city transport that has known and moderate range requirements. You get the benefits of electrification (mainly local pollution and low maintenance and fuel costs) without range worries.
The Irish Post office is in the process of doing the same.


Yes, short range Postal Service vehicles are ideal for electrification. So far Germany and France seem to be leading but China is coming fast.
