Delivery vehicles — typically vans and smaller trucks — are much easier to transition to electric than heavy trucks, for example. The duty cycle works well with electric: a short length of operation, the ability to return to a central base, and frequent stops and starts that work well with regenerative braking.

In addition, long-lasting lithium-ion batteries provide enough range for many routes with plenty of charging time overnight. For example, for a 20kwh battery with a range of up to 120 miles, the estimated charging required is eight hours.

How do Electric vehicles help solve some problems in last-mile delivery?

  1. Each commercial truck or van that goes electric has a more significant impact
  2. Last-mile delivery can be more environmentally friendly with green fuels.
  3. Electric fleets can also replace internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles for cost purposes.
