Sporting an electric drivetrain, a pair of drones and a totally minimized human element, the Vision Van practically does the whole job itself.
Do you like jobs where you barely do anything? You're going to love Mercedes-Benz's vision of the future.
The Vision Van is entirely electric, relying on a 168-mile range to complete the day's deliveries.
Why yes, those are two drones strapped to the roof. They help deliver packages to congested areas.
There are no sliding doors because the driver will only ever need to grab a package from a window in the cabin.
It's loaded automatically using autonomous machines.
LED lights on the grille and body will alert others to drone launches or delivery stops.
A built-in computer terminal automatically sorts the packages and hands the correct one to the driver.
Humans are barely even needed in this process.
Nearly every part of the process is handled autonomously.
There are no wheels or pedals here -- just a driver that needs to focus on delivering packages.
