As far as customer acceptance goes, it was noticeable in the course of the driving sessions that the initial reticence turned into confidence in the new drive technology and the customers expressed increasing enthusiasm for the concept. The driving trials’ initial analysis results prove high product reliability and quality. Charging times here were relatively short and the average distances travelled were not more than 35 kilometres.
The high quality and good driving performance are confirmed by numerous awards. These include the »Postal Technology International Award 2010« in the category »Transport/Logistics Innovation of the Year«, the title »KEPTransporter des Jahres 2011« (Courier Van of the Year) in the category »Innovationspreis« (Innovation Prize) and the »International Design Award 2011« at the »Michelin Challenge Bibendum 2011«.
