    Only learned about that today, the Deutsche Post/DHL group bought the Streetscooter GmbH last december, a small producer of "bare necessities" street-legal, affordable electric cars.

    The plan is now to ramp up production to 5.000 units per year. The deutsche Post has stated that they intend to electrify as much of their fleet as possible. Makes sense that they buy out the company that makes their vehicles. Streetscooter also produces small electric 'cars' not unlike the Renault Twizzy.

    Myself, I'm thrilled to see that there is a business case for electric vehicles as delivery carriers around cities, and that people understand the math and act accordingly.

    And yes, this is my second thread about Streetscooter, but the last one failed spectecularly :p
