ITE Bus&Truck Kft., the winner of the invitational tender, will deliver 20 Mercedes-Benz eVito and 20 Mercedes-Benz eSprinter vehicles to the company, Magyar Posta told MTI on Monday.

According to the information, the total value of the winning bid of the 40 vehicles is close to HUF 700 million, and based on the contract, the vehicles will be delivered to Magyar Posta by August 31, 2022. The new electric vehicles can travel more than 130 kilometers on a single charge, and their cargo space is suitable for transporting packages.

With this purchase, Magyar Posta Zrt. has taken an important step for environmental protection, as it has almost doubled the number of green vehicles in its fleet of around 5,000 vehicles. With the current acquisition, the current stock of electric vehicles, consisting of 44 units, will be expanded to 84.

The 40 new vehicles are in service in Miskolc, Tatabánya, Szolnok and Budapest, and replace some of the post office’s 17-year-old Volkswagen Transporter T5 vehicles.
