Allianz offering “special insurance” for StreetScooter electric vehicles
Allianz is now offering third-party liability and comprehensive insurance for vehicles from Deutsche Post DHL’s subsidiary StreetScooter.
In a statement issued yesterday (20 July), Deutsche Post DHL said: “The insurance is provided under the Ford Autoversicherung brand and available at selected Ford dealers throughout Germany that sell StreetScooter vehicles.
“The insurance is designed to include the modern safety components found in StreetScooter vehicles, as well as their cost-effective repair.
“The offer supports StreetScooter’s Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) approach, which provides a low total cost of e-mobility so small and medium-sized enterprises can switch to this environmentally friendly drive technology. An expansion into other markets with further insurance and service solutions is planned.”
Achim Kampker, CEO of StreetScooter, said: “Allianz is a strong partner who will help us breakthrough with e-mobility into various industries. This cooperation makes it even more viable for business customers to opt for our electric vehicles as the cost-effective service, maintenance and repair of StreetScooters are complemented by an attractive insurance policy.”
StreetScooter became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Deutsche Post DHL in 2014. Thousands of its vehicles are used by Deutsche Post DHL to deliver letters and parcels in Germany. In addition to the delivery van bodies, StreetScooters are also available as dumper trucks and pickups and in other formats.
