DHL electric van technology set to become available to public

The StreetScooter, an all-electric delivery van developed by German engineering professor, Dr Günter Schuh, in collaboration with DHL, is likely to become available to the general public in 2018, according to German news outlet, Verkehrsrundschau.

Titled EGO Life, the public version of the vehicle will be developed independently from the DHL one, which is being manufactured by DHL’s own StreetScooter business.

The concept, however, will remain the same, with Schuh saying the vehicle will target metropolitan applications with short driving distances.

Schuh said there was a potential production capacity of 10,000 units annually.

DHL has been using the StreetScooter van across Germany since 2014.
