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 launched in the 1970s.
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?

Facts about PostNord's electric fleet
Around 28% of our vehicles are electric. Many of the group’s employees use bicycles in their daily work. PostNord is conducting tests of the latest generation of electric vehicles for both collection and delivery of mail in Sweden and Denmark. Of the group’s approximately 5,000 electric vehicles, more than 80% are small electric vehicles such as bicycles and mopeds. We are also testing larger electric vehicles because there is a need to be able to cover longer distances with heavier loads.
The investment in electric vehicles is an important component of PostNord’s efforts to achieve the long-term target of reducing the group’s carbon emissions by 40% between 2009 and 2020.
