Because electric cars failed: Post in mountain region comes back with diesel transporters
Klaus-Dietmar Gabbert/DPA central picture/dpa Deutsche Post has found a buyer for StreetScooter production.
In the hard winter, the post must be able to rely on its van. This is obviously not the case with the electrical street scooter: the eco transporters cannot be used in Berchtesgaden.
That reports that "Traunsteiner Tagblatt". During the winter months, the cars with which the Post wants to improve the CO2 balance of its vehicle fleet did not cope with the requirements placed on them. "In practice, it turned out that the vehicles are not optimal on stronger slopes, especially in the case of snow alike. The vehicles are too light, spongy in snow", the newspaper quotes a post employee. Therefore, conventional post buses with an internal combustion engine must now be back on certain routes."However, the electric vehicles are still in the company, according to the speaker, currently transport packages in the Traunsteiner Delivery area", the newspaper continues.
Hardly enough and fire incidents
It is not the first time for the StreetScooter of Swiss Post that considerable construction deficiencies of the vehicle become public. So the eco transporter had to be called back due to several incidents . There were also reports on complaints from post-drivers about the Stromer, for example due to low ranges and poor heating power in the driving cabin.
The Deutsche Post DHL has meanwhile said goodbye to the production of electric vehicles. The Bonn Group announced in early January that it had sold the production rights for the street scooter to the Luxembourg company consortium Odin Automotive. The buyer would continue to build the Stromer. Information on the purchase price was not given. The StreetScooter subsidiaries in Japan and Switzerland also change the owner.
