So­lar de­liv­ery ve­hi­cle

Global Times - Weekend - - TECH -

Chi­nese on­line re­tailer JD.com Inc has launched a so­lar ex­press de­liv­ery ser­vice, which is ex­pected to re­duce car­bon emis­sions by 10,000 tons ev­ery year.

The first batch of 50 so­lar de­liv­ery ve­hi­cles will be grad­u­ally put into use in the Beijing mar­ket dur­ing this year’s 618 shop­ping festival, a mid-year on­line e-com­merce spree launched by JD in 2010, which has fallen in ev­ery June ever since.

In com­par­i­son with pre­vi­ous de­liv­ery ve­hi­cles, mainly pow­ered by elec­tric­ity, the new so­lar-pow­ered ones can in­crease de­liv­ery ca­pac­ity by at least 40 parcels a day, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease the com­pany sent to the Global Times on Tues­day.
