Volkswagen reinvents the delivery van with e3! 21 November 2011

Volkswagen and Deutsche Post have released the results of a think tank that was formed to solve future transport and mobility issues – with the unveiling of the eT!

Jürgen Leohold, director of Volkswagen Group Research says: "We analysed process flows and customer needs in detail, and from these analyses we derived ideas on how the segment of delivery and courier vehicles could be further developed over the long term."

According to Leohold, it's all about zero-emissions driving and recognising the available space in urban areas – so moving to semi-automatic driving, simplified work processes and better communication technologies.

"eT! is a pure electrically powered transporter that systematically transfers E-mobility to the area of commercial use," explains Rudolf Krebs, group manager for electric traction at Volkswagen AG.

"The eT! not only drives with zero emissions in urban areas – thanks to its electric wheel hub motors – but also offers maximum freedom in manoeuvring and turning as well as optimal use of the vehicle's interior space."
