Press Kit Description
Ford starts the production of the Deutsche Post StreetScooter WORK XL van at its European HQ in Cologne, Germany. The electric delivery van is produced in cooperation with StreetScooter GmbH, a subsidiary of Deutsche Post DHL Group.
Based on a Ford Transit chassis, the electric delivery van is fitted with a battery-electric drivetrain and a body designed and built to Deutsche Post DHL specifications. Around 180 Ford employees are working in two shifts to build up to 16 WORK XL models per day, providing an annual production capacity of 3,500 units.
With this partnership, both companies are making an important contribution to reducing CO2 in German cities. Compared with diesel models, each electric delivery van will offer a reduction in CO2 emissions of 5 tonnes each year and a saving of 1,900 litres of fuel.
