Mercedes-Benz is looking to change the process of delivery by introducing the Vision Van. As an integrated system, the vehicle is designed with various innovative technologies for last-mile delivery operations, thus setting the standard for future generations of vans.
The all-electric automobile is the first van worldwide to fully digitally connect all people and processes involved in delivery, from distribution center to recipient. The vehicle is turn equipped with an automated cargo space, as well as integrated delivery drones.
In taking advantage of such design elements, the transporter could then deliver multiple packages simultaneously to a given area, even by air.
The Vision Van, featuring a 75 kW electric drive, has a range of 80 kilometers to roughly 270 kilometers and is emission free.
In addition, Mercedes-Benz is also working on innovative leasing, rental and sharing models, tailored to the needs of van customers.
Mercedes Benz also recently unveiled the autonomous Future Bus that could very well be the future of public transportation.
