Amazon orders 40 e-vans from StreetScooter

Amazon.com Inc. has ordered 40 electric vans and 60 charging stations from StreetScooter, the electric vehicle manufacturer's parent company Deutsche Post said on Wednesday. The e-commerce giant will use the WORK Box e-vans for last-mile deliveries to Munich from its distribution center in the Bavarian city.

"Amazon is committed to achieving the Paris agreement targets ten 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," senior lead sustainability at Amazon Europe, Adam Elman, stated. "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."
