DHL buys into zero emissions with 35 electric vans from BYD14 January 2016

Global logistics firm DHL has taken delivery of 35 all-electric vans from Chinese manufacturer BYD, to use for daily deliveries in and around the city of Shenzhen.

BYD’s new T3 model is the vehicle chosen and the deal, says BYD, is the start of a “strategic cooperation” between the two organisations. If the T3 proves successful, more BYD vehicles will enter service with DHL.

The T3 has a 3.5 cubic metre cargo space and can carry up to 800kg. Maximum torque is 310Nm and maximum speed 130kph. The vehicle can cover more than 200km between charges.

BYD has also launched two other electric vehicles for the logistics sector: the T5, with a gross weight of 7,320kg and range of up to 250km; and the T7, with a gross weight of 10,695kg and range of up to 200km.
