Amazon has placed an order with electric delivery vehicle manufacturer StreetScooter for 40 of its Work Box EVs.
The new vehicles will be deployed at Amazon’s distribution center in Munich Daglfing, Germany, and will be complemented by 60 charging stations.
“We were very delighted that Amazon turned to StreetScooter for a climate-friendly delivery solution as well as our proven charging infrastructure expertise,” said Jörg Sommer, CEO of StreetScooter.
“Amazon is committed to achieving the Paris agreement targets 10 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.”
