BMW Supplies i3 Battery Modules For Deutsche Post’s Streetscooters

JAN 20 2018 BY MARK KANE 2

BMW has announced it has entered into a partnership with Deutsche Post DHL – to supply battery modules for the Streetscooter electric delivery vehicle.

StreetScooter WORK XL

Deutsche Post DHL acquired the Streetscooter company in 2014, and has already produced more than 5,000 of the EVs.

The new ones will now be equipped with the same battery modules as in the i3 (eight modules – 12 cells each stores 33 kWh of energy). It’s not known how many modules will be used in various versions of the StreetScooters.

Beside the Streetscooter WORK and WORK L vans, Deutsche Post DHL is developing the StreetScooter WORK XL using Ford Transit chassis.

For BMW, it’s another supply deal, after company began sales of battery modules for marine propulsion systems too.

Oooooooold news.

I guess that is one way for BMW to capitalize on the self-inflicted misfortune of its rival VAG when they straight up REFUSED to consider building PEVs for Deutsche Post and instead offered to sell them diesels, never imagining that DP would go on their own and build PEV delivery vehicles themselves!

Welcome to Capitalism when it works, innovators innovate and laggards drag their feet.
