Automotive News – Early June 2021

Royal Mail has announced plans to add an additional 3,000 low-emission delivery vans to its fleet, in the same week that DPD placed an order for 750 fully electric vans.

Royal Mail currently operates some 300 electric vehicles (EVs), so the vision marks a ten-fold increase in the size of its electric fleet. The new vehicles – the first of which will enter operation this summer – will be added to existing delivery routes and depots will receive models with load capacities ranging from 3.7m3 to 6.3m3 depending on their needs.

All Royal Mail delivery offices will need to have EV charging points fitted as part of the plan.–as-DPD-orders-750-electric-vans/?utm_source=dailynewsletter,%20AdestraCampaign&utm_medium=email,%20Email&utm_content=news&utm_campaign=dailynewsletter,
