Advanced battery experts, at WMG, fitted the vehicle with a powerful 48V 6.5kWh battery system – increasing its peak power from 12 kilowatt to 36 kilowatt – helping it to cope with an increased weight of goods, and to conserve energy despite the start-stop nature of deliveries.

The DELIVER-E also has an open-platform vehicle control system – enabling the development of bespoke control systems – and a touchscreen Human-Machine Interface.DELIVER-E will be showcased as a demonstrator, at a number of events through the year.
