PostNord is currently launching its most extensive fleet of electric vans to date. 200 Mercedes-Benz eVitos and Mercedes-Benz eSprinter left the port of Malmö. Among the largest fleets in Sweden and the Nordic countries is PostNord. The company has more than 1,800 electric vehicles in its fleet, making it the Swedish business with the most incredible hands-on experience with electric driving. Today, electric vehicles make up almost 25% of PostNord Sweden's fleet, and that number is rising quickly.
PostNord Sweden's vehicle expert Hans Ankergrd Karolin says, "We bought our first electric vehicles in 1999, so we've been experimenting with electric powertrains for a while."
Mercedes-Benz has received a new order for 200 electric vehicles (20 Mercedes-Benz eVito and 180 Mercedes-Benz eSprinter electric vans). PostNord Sweden has just made its largest-ever purchase of electric delivery vehicles.
Mercedes-Benz is one of six light vehicle suppliers with whom PostNord has framework agreements. Vehicle models from each supplier are rated on a scale of one to ten, with ten being the best, based on factors such as the number of available options and warranties, as well as the quality of the surrounding area and the accessibility of the suppliers' service centers.
More than half of the automobiles were to be delivered by the end of the year as part of the March 2022 purchase. Mercedes-Benz was rare among suppliers in that it met that standard.
PostNord has a defined plan to achieve zero-fossil-fuel transportation by 2030. In addition to increasing its fleet of electric vehicles, the company is also installing new charging stations.
Based on the average annual mileage driven by company vehicles, the charging stations have been strategically distributed across the country. Having enough room in our garages to set up charging stations is another aspect of deciding where to park the EVs.
Places with longer driving distances will get the next-generation electric automobiles, whose technology allows for a more excellent range. In order to provide emission-free last-mile service on light vehicles by 2027, PostNord Sweden must first establish a nationwide charging infrastructure for electric cars. @via PostNord.
