DHL will roll out a new fleet of 63 electric delivery vans that will serve US markets. The fleet of 63 NGEN-1000 electric delivery cargo vans are produced by equipment manufacturer Workhorse Group. Capable of running up to 100 miles on a charge, the vans have ultra-low floors to reduce physical stress on workers’ knees and back, and a high roof design that maximizes cargo space in a small footprint (1,008 cubic feet of cargo capacity).
The NGEN-1000 GEN 1000 supports up to 6,000 lbs. payload with 1,000 cubic feet of cargo space. The all-wheel drive van gets 50 MPGe and delivers 100 miles all-electric range.
DHL will roll out the first 30 NGEN-1000 electric delivery cargo vans in the San Francisco Bay Area.
