Interestingly, trucks may not be used for long trips due to their limited cruising range. The eVito vehicle can only travel about 100-150 km on a single charge. This limited cruising range may make this car an ideal choice for Amazon Prime Today's same-day delivery service, which delivers products from local warehouses to customers in some cities.
Although Amazon only buys eVito trucks, Mercedes-Benz can offer another model. eVito is a smaller vehicle for small delivery, but eSprinter is more similar to the size of a UPS or FedEx truck. However, its cruising range is also limited to 150 kilometers, which is roughly equivalent to eVito.
It is unclear when Amazon's new electric fleet will be put into use.
