Electric Delivery

The eStar was designed from the chassis up as an electric vehicle for use in cities. Intended to replace fossil-­fuel-powered trucks for things like package deliveries, it can haul up to 1,800 kilograms. The truck features a battery pack that can be swapped out in 20 minutes; a fully charged pack will let the eStar travel up to 161 kilometers.
