We’ve previously written about the future autonomous Mercedes Vanguard with its drone delivery system (you can read it here), but this month another brand got in on the action.
At Wired 2016 in London, a futuristic self-drive electric delivery van was revealed that could be on UK streets as early as next year. With a basic design and built with lightweight materials, the manufacturer claims an individual can easily assemble one in just four hours.
The Chief Executive of Charge, the firm behind the vehicle, has said:
“We find trucks today totally unacceptable. Loud, polluting and unfriendly,”
“We are making trucks the way they should be - affordable, elegant, quiet, clean and safe.”
He added: “We are removing all the barriers to entry for electric vehicles by pricing them in line with conventional trucks, giving every fleet manager, tradesperson or company, no matter how big or small, the opportunity to change the way they transport goods and make our towns and cities better places to live in.”
Would you buy a light-weight van that could be assembled in an afternoon? Well, whether you would or you’d prefer to stick to the traditional van, you’ll need insurance. Compare van insurance quotes online here.
