U.K.-based electric mobility company Electric Assist Vehicles, better known as EAV, has introduced a novel electric cargo van that can quickly and easily be manipulated to perform a wide variety of functions and handle a number of loads based on its specific environment.
The 'Lincs' vehicle, which is short for 'Lightweight Inner-City Solution,' is designed to be hooked up to other vehicles in order to form what EAV refers to as a "road train," an autonomous chain of Lincs vehicles that can navigate the urban environment with greater efficiency and flexibility than existing vehicles.
What's more, this particular electric cargo van can also be adapted for autonomous use, making it all the more attractive to industry players looking to cut both costs as well as greenhouse gas emissions in their delivery-related endeavors.
