Last-mile electrification – electrification’s best use case

Amazon has lit on the very best use case for electric vehicles. Last mile delivery generates lots of rips and lots of air pollution. It looks like they are going to invest big in improving their carbon footprint in the last mile delivery.

I believe it makes strategic sense and well as driving long-term cost reduction for Amazon. And it’s a lot more eco-friendly. Fleets like Amazon uses, with traveling-salesman-type routes from a depot or distribution center, are best positioned to mitigate the problems with electric vehicles– shorter distances before fuel-up, and longer time to refuel.
