VW has received – it could be – the largest order of all-electric trucks to date.
Ambev, Brazilian brewery, has committed to electrify its delivery fleet and placed an order for 1,600 all-electric trucks with Volkswagen.
Last year, VW announced plans for a $1.7 billion investment to bring electric trucks and buses to market.
One of their first electric trucks will be the ‘VW e-Delivery:
It features a 170 kWh battery pack, which enables up to 200 km (124 miles) of range on a single charge, according to the automaker.
The Brazilian company thinks smart and “green”
Their plans are to charge the trucks solely from renewable energy and expects that it will remove about 30.4K tons of carbon in its logistic chain per year.
