The Streetscooter project developed by the RWTH Aachen with a consortium of 50 companies initially focused on an affordable electric city-car.
At the 2012 IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover, a utility version developed in collaboration with the Deutsche Post has been unveiled.
Longer wheelbase for a total length of 4.6 m and four cubic meters of loading capacity characterize this electric utility vehicle.
Designed for urban deliveries, this prototype has a 45kW motor and is limited to 85kph allowing it to display a range of 120km.
Streetscooter highlights the possibility of creating custom vehicles from 500 units as well as the competitiveness of the car in terms of maintenance cost compared to a combustion vehicle.
No price has been revealed yet, but given the € 5,000 (excluding battery) announced by the version for individuals, the price of the commercial version should also be interesting.
