Electric vehicle manufacturer StreetScooter has revealed the next generation of its commercial Work and Work L vehicles.
The new vehicles feature a redesigned box body with a larger payload of over a ton. Furthermore, the new versions can reach a top speed of 120km/h (75mph) and offer enhanced safety features. For example, they include an in-vehicle Automatic Emergency Call system, eCall, and the AVAS Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System, both of which ensure more safety in road traffic.
The electric vehicles also offer an enhanced user experience thanks to a standard automatic climate control system, keyless entry and keyless start, and a passenger-side airbag. Plus, thanks to the new faster charging system of 11kW, the vehicles can reach an 80% charge in approximately three and a half hours.
“StreetScooter is a well-known ‘early bird’ in the electric light commercial vehicle sector,” said StreetScooter CEO Jörg Sommer. “Years of experience and more than 100 million kilometers 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.”
StreetScooter has also announced that it is enhancing its management team with two new appointments. As the new chief growth officer, Tesla director Peter Bardenfleth-Hansen will be responsible for the further growth and development of StreetScooter’s international sales organization and its innovative energy and logistics services.
Meanwhile, Ford manager Ulrich Stuhec will be taking on the role of chief technology officer and driving product development and new platform and technology development, including autonomous driving. He will also be responsible for the China expansion of StreetScooter. Current CTO Fabian Schmitt will take on a new role within the company.
