Electric vehicles have become essential to global efforts to mitigate climate change and reduce carbon emissions. In Denmark, the logistics and transport giant Deutsche Post DHL Group (DHL) is leading the way in this transition by partnering with Ford Denmark to deploy a fleet of electric Ford E-Transit vans across the country. The collaboration is part of a larger European agreement between Ford Europe and DHL, which aims to put over 2,000 electric Ford E-Transit vans on the roads this year. Let's take a closer look at this exciting development and what it means for the future of the electric fleet.
The Ford E-Transit is Ford's first 100% electric van, and it has already generated significant interest in the market. Before the first van even rolled off the assembly line, Ford had already received more than 5,000 orders from European customers. The vehicle offers an electric powertrain, uncompromising capability, and interaction with Ford Pro, a concept providing a comprehensive fleet management solution for van customers. The Ford Pro offers services ranging from service, software, financing, and charging support, helping to increase the uptime of each van and reduce costs.
