Electric vehicles were particularly advantageous on short routes and with small transport loads. The post office used them mainly in local and suburban areas. Since its founding in 1914, the Hansa-Lloyd-Werke in Bremen has been one of the leading manufacturers of electric vehicles in Germany. This package delivery vehicle had a load capacity of 4740 pounds (2150 kg), a power output of 14 horsepower, a maximum speed of 13.7 miles per hour, and a radius of 34 miles (55 km).
