Electric Vehicles At Work: Fulda, Germany

This is the ultimate in food convenience. A small personal shopping service located in Fulda, Germany started using a Reva-i electric car for its delivery service. Called "Der Bringer' (the bringer), the service offers personal shopping and food delivery including pizza, as in the photo above, Subway sandwiches -- yes, they have those too in Germany -- and even sushi. They'll do you grocery shopping for you and even pick and deliver gifts on your behalf. The service costs €30 for 10 shopping trips.

Der Bringer currently has the lithium-ion-powered Reva on loan and extolls its green virtues on its web site. It also notes that it costs just €1.80 to charge the car, which has a driving range of 80-100 km. The company believes it is the first such service in Germany to utilize an electric car for its deliveries.
