The Logistar 100, or LS 100, is a versatile, compact light cargo van purpose-built to serve diverse commercial applications, especially in population-dense urban areas. The vehicle has a range of 74 miles (118 kilometers) (WLTP), 1151 lbs. (525 kg) of payload, and a cargo capacity of 73.3 cubic feet (2 cubic meters). The combination of its cargo space and multiple entry points at the side and rear of the vehicle makes the LS100 ideal for multiple applications, including package delivery, trade and maintenance services, hospitality, and catering.
The LS100 completed all homologation tests in compliance with the standards and requirements of the European Union (EU) in July and received type approval from the EU in August. As a result, the LS100 is eligible for sale in all 27 EU member states and other countries that adopt EU vehicle homologation standards.
"The Logistar 100 reflects our desire to serve the needs of an increasingly diverse market," said Peter Wang, Cenntro's Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer. "The LS100 expands our product line and responds to customer needs for an adaptable electric vehicle, particularly for Europe, one of our key markets. The LS100’s size and capacity offer fleets and business owners a true electric vehicle choice to meet their needs without sacrificing function or performance."
The Logistar 100 will make its world premiere at the upcoming IAA Transportation Exhibition from September 20-25 in Hanover, Germany. Learn more at www.iaa-transportation.com/en.
