DHL Express has partnered with Al Naboodah Automobiles to introduce for the first time in the GCC region an all-electric Volkswagen e-Golf for.
The fully customised 134-horsepower electric-Golf car will initially be used for DHL Express documents’ delivery and collection specifically in areas with high volume traffic, such as Dubai International Financial Centre and Downtown Dubai, followed by gradual expansion to remaining areas in the UAE in the near future.
Running entirely on electrical current with a 100kW AC electric motor, re-chargeable on standard power supply, the e-Golf is also the only, fully customised commercial vehicle in the UAE with a segregated cargo bay separated from the driver.
With its full adaptation to DHL’s duties, the e-Golf has the capacity to complete a 250km journey operating on just a single electric charge as well as boasting advanced endurance capabilities when exposed to warm weather. The innovative vehicle also uses a regenerative braking system, allowing the conversion of stored kinetic energy to be used to recharge its batteries.
