This object is an electrically operated Bergmann delivery van. The BEL 2500 was designed for use in cities, where the total daily driving distance was short, and the top speed was unimportant. This vehicle reached a top speed of 12.4 miles per hour with a range of 37 miles (60 km) on a single battery charge. The classification is based on the load capacity, so the Model 2500 could carry 2,500 kilograms (5,511 pounds).
