Royal Mail, an important postal service and courier company in the UK,
unveiled a new electric truck made by Arrival.

The company is starting a trial today with 3 versions of the vehicle to
transport packages between its mail and distribution centres around London.

Paul Gatti, Royal Mail Fleet’s Managing Director, said that a successful
trial could lead to a broader adoption of the technology in the company’s
fleet of almost 50,000 vehicles:

    “Royal Mail is delighted to be collaborating with Arrival and pioneering
the adoption of large electric commercial vehicles. We will be putting them
through their paces over the next several months to see how they cope with
the mail collection demands from our larger sites. We have trialled electric
trucks before but not of this type of innovative design and look forward to
see what additional benefits they can bring to our existing fleet of around
49,000 vehicles.”

Arrival, formerly known as Charge Auto, built the trucks at their new
110,000 sqft factory in Banbury.

They claim that the trucks are built using a “revolutionary
ultra-lightweight composite materials that significantly reduce the weight
of the vehicle and by combining this technology with Arrival’s custom built
hardware, including power electronics and motors, the cost of operating has
been reduced by more than 50%.”

They say that they optimized the maximum range to weight ratio for inner
city deliveries with battery packs enabling up to 100 miles of range on 3.5,
6 and 7.5 tonne trucks.

There’s a growing market for those kinds of trucks as parcel companies are
starting to see the benefits of converting their fleets to electric
vehicles.

Deutsche Post has been building its own electric delivery vans and they
recently announced a partnership with Ford to build a fleet of 2,500 bigger
all-electric delivery trucks ...
