Magyar Posta tests electric vehicles
Hungarian state-owned postal company Magyar Posta is testing out several models of electric vehicles between August 2015 and January 2016 to help it reach a decision on possible purchases, CEO Zsolt Szarka said today, according to Hungarian news agency MTI.
The CEO said that the postal company is looking for cost-effective and environmentally friendly solutions for logistics operations and package delivery. He added that electric vehicles could be used in more densely populated areas to generate big savings on fuel costs.
The models being tested by Magyar Posta include cars manufactured by Citroen, Nissan, Volkswagen, Kia and Renault and an electric scooter made by Govecs.
