The Vision Van is now launched
Mercedes-Benz presented in Stuttgart the Vision Van, a freight transport vehicle, which is currently going through its design phase, which introduces itself as being the «future van». It is fully electric and it includes attached drones to make deliveries.
Part of the strategic initiative «adVANce future», Vision Van presents itself as the first van able to digitally connect the entire delivery process of any given good, from the distribution chain to the consumer.
Such process goes through a load area exclusively automated by the vehicle and it ends with the delivery carried out by drones (2) that work as a complement to the human aspect of deliveries, where the van is.
Vision Van will have an electric thruster of 75 kW, or 100 hp and 270 n-m, which will reach a speed of 120 kph (74 mph) with two batteries for a maximum autonomy of 270 km (168 mi).
