September 19, 2020 – Croatian Post goes green by adding another 20 electric vehicles to its fleet. There are now a total of 220 electric vehicles in the fleet, of which 40 are four-wheelers.
Glas Istre reports that the Croatian Post has expanded its “green” fleet with 20 new electric quadricycles. The addition is a continuation of the multi-year procurement of electric vehicles and the renewal of the vehicle fleet in accordance with reducing the harmful impact on the environment and higher energy efficiency.
There are a total of 220 electric vehicles in the Croatian Post fleet, of which 40 are four-wheelers. Each electric vehicle can drive for 60 km with one charge, and the maximum speed is 45 km / h.
The volume of the luggage tank is 300 l, and the load capacity is about 150 kg. The introduction of electric vehicles contributes to reducing the operating costs of the vehicle fleet and increasing energy efficiency.
These vehicles enable better mobility in city centers and optimize efficiency by gradually reducing fossil fuel vehicles.
By using 40 electric quadricycles for delivery, the Croatian Post will significantly reduce its carbon footprint because carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by as much as 15.2 t.
Funds for the purchase of 20 electric quadricycles were co-financed by grants from the Fund for Environmental Protection and Energy Efficiency.
Recall, the services of the Croatian Post became more expensive from September 1, 2020.
“As of September 1, 2020, Croatian Post applies a new price list for postal services in domestic traffic. The price of sending letters weighing up to 50 grams and greeting cards and postcards will be 3 kuna and 30 lipa instead of the 3 kuna and 10 lipa, which is an increase of 6%. The price of the additional service “return” is also 3.30 kuna. As the price of court documents consists of the price of a recommendation and the price of a return receipt, the price of sending a court document has been increased by 20 lipa. For example, instead of 14.60 kuna for a court document weighing up to 50 grams, as of September 1, its price is 14.80 kuna,” they announced at the beginning of the month.
