The Amazon distribution center in München-Daglfing a few days ago, ten battery-electric-powered eVito were handed over to the Transporter. The box car in its long variant of the unit are painted in dark grey Amazon color scheme and are already used in Munich. The delivery of further vehicles is planned to power the electric fleet, from the Amazon to expand. Be loaded to the transporters directly in the distribution center, to be built up which is why this purpose, a performance-based charging infrastructure was.
Stefan Sunday, Sales Manager, New Vehicles Mercedes-Benz Vans Sales Germany: “The inner-city delivery traffic in the courier, Express, package, area, drives an ideal application for electric. Therefore, we are delighted that Amazon has chosen for the eVito, and now the Munich-based Amazon drivers, as well as their customers can see the benefits of locally emission-free driving with Mercedes-Benz Vans.“
Adam Elman, Senior Lead Sustainability at Amazon in Europe adds: “We are pleased to continue our cooperation with a great Partner, through which we have now on E-vehicles in our Munich-based fleet. Amazon has co-founded recently Climate Pledge and the Commitments of the Paris climate protection agreement commits to achieve for ten years prior to the targeted completion date – namely, 2040. Strong partnerships, such as with Daimler will enable us to achieve this goal“.
eVito fit for urban use
The eVito is the car especially in the urban environment in the home and in its variant as a box perfect for local-emission-free Transport on the last mile. An installed battery capacity of 41 kWh provides a range of 150 to 184 kilometers. Even in unfavourable conditions such as winter cold can customers expect a range of about 100 kilometers. After six hours of charging time, the full range is available again. The battery-electric drive has an output of 85 kW and reaches a torque of up to 295 Newton meters, tailor-made for urban use. The maximum speed depending on the application in order to configure. The eVito mainly in the urban areas is on-the-go, protects a maximum speed of 80 km/h the energy reserves and increases the range. Alternatively, a maximum speed of up to 120 km/h can be configured. The positioning of the battery in the base of eVito creates a spacious interior without any restrictions with regard to the loading volume. The Midsize Van can be ordered in two different lengths: As a base version with a total length of 5.140 millimeters as well as a extra long Version that comes down to 5.370 mm. In addition to the run as box cars for the transport of goods, the Vito is also available as a Tourer for the carriage of passengers available.
