Electrifying distribution

Quickpac is the first parcel service provider in Europe to rely exclusively on electric cars for delivering parcels. The Quickpac fleet currently consists of 101 Renault Kangoo Maxi Z.E. Tests of other vehicle types are in preparation.
Thanks to the longer useful life of electric engines compared to combustion engines, electric cars make an additional contribution to sustainable mobility.
As well as harmful emissions, noise prevention is also a major advantage of using electric cars. During parcel deliveries in particular, the frequent start-ups create even more noise than ongoing road traffic. In contrast, an electric car starts up almost silently. In particular this is also an advantage, or in fact a prerequisite, for delivering parcels in the evening.
On days with high parcel volumes and for destinations that are out of battery range, Quickpac uses rental vehicles. As Switzerland does not currently have any electrically powered rental vehicles available, this means that a small proportion of parcels will be delivered by vehicles with combustion engines. However, averaged over a year, fewer than 1% of parcels are delivered using such vehicles.
A few technical details on the Renault Kangoo Z.E. Maxi:
Battery: 33 kWh, enables a range of up to 200 km; for delivering with frequent stops and starts, the effective range is 120 to 150 km depending on the outdoor temperature and the area
Load capacity: 650 kg, loading space: 4.6 m³
Power: 44 kW (60 hp), maximum speed 130 km/h
