PostNord has one of Europe's largest fleets of electric vehicles with approximately 3000 electric bicycles, mopeds and club cars.
Electric vehicles is nothing new to PostNord. A century ago, just before the First World War, electric cars were used in Copenhagen for local distribution. In Sweden the first electric car where launced in the 1970s. Today, over 25 per cent of the mail delivery vehicles in Sweden are comprised of small electric cars and electric mopeds. These are recharged overnight with eco-labelled electricity.
Electric vehicles have low impact on the environment, are reliable and offer low cost per kilometre. But how do electric cars work in reality? Are they as good as traditional fuel-driven cars?
