Brazil-based Ambev Brewery, owner of brands such as Skol, Brahma, Antarctica and Guaraná, announced that by 2023, it will use 1,600 electric trucks made by Volkswagen Caminhões e Ônibus (VWCO) to transport beverages.
With the partnership, about 35% of the fleet serving the brewery will consist of clean energy-powered vehicles, no longer emitting more than 30.4K tons of carbon in its logistic chain per year. The deal is the VWCO’s largest for the cargo segment this year.
(…) The prototype for the e-Delivery was developed in partnership with Eletra. It is equipped with the new WEG AL160 electric motor, which delivers 80 kW (109 hp) power, with maximum torque of 493 N·m and an Allison automatic transmission. It uses LiFePO4 lithium-ion battery packs.
