Cover Story
"
We have the best of both worlds: the innovation and agility of a tech startup
and the manufacturing expertise, track record and production scale of GM.
of the EV600 in a smaller, more-maneuverable
package. It offers 400 cu. ft. of cargo area and its more
compact dimensions - 150 in. (3810 mm) wheelbase,
overall length slightly less than 20 ft. (6.1 m) - give
it desirable maneuverability and " curb management: "
EV410 can fit into a standard-size parking space. Gross
vehicle weight is less than 10,000 lb. (4,536 kg). Other
vehicles are in development.
BrightDrop's EP1 " is a highly maneuverable
electric pallet that can carry 23 cu. ft. of cargo and
200 pounds of payload, " Armenta said. " In high-density
areas, it makes sense for drivers to be able to exit
the vehicle with many packages to deliver within an
area such as a condo, an office building or a campus,
and it allows the driver to complete 20 or 30 package
deliveries with one round trip, " he explained. " It also
helps with reverse logistics, since some customers have
return packages. "
Integrated delivery solutions
Armenta noted that a pilot program with FedEx
Express in Toronto has demonstrated that some 25%
more packages can be delivered per day by reducing
driver roundtrips to and from their vehicles. " So, the
combination of EV600 and EP1 will bring really huge
benefits in efficiency while reducing congestion and
exhaust emissions in cities, " he said. Pre-loaded with
packages for delivery to a specific area or address,
several EP1s can be carried in the vehicle, then
unloaded and maneuvered to wherever the packages
need to go.
" Think of it as an electric handcart capable of

navigating sidewalks and moving around easily inside
buildings, " he offered. EP1 has locked doors for cargo
security and BrightDrop software tracks how often the
unit's doors are opened and packages are removed or
inserted. These features enable the delivery people " to
