UPS Going Electric
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
As many parcel delivery companies are looking into electric vehicles to reduce their operating costs as well as reducing their negative impact on air pollution, UPS is leading the way in that front by ordering a fleet of 1,000 electric vans from Workhorse. According to Electrek, UPS deployed a small fleet of new neat-looking custom-built all-electric delivery trucks in London in May. UPS is also trying to convert up to 1,500 delivery trucks to battery-electric in New York. UPS has also bought some of Daimler’s new electric trucks, ordered 125 Tesla Semi trucks, and 50 all-electric delivery trucks by Workhorse . Recently UPS also signed an agreement to buy 950 N-GEN plug-in electric delivery vehicles. Workhorse reported that the new N-GEN electric van has a range of 100 miles on a single charge and they can add a 75-mile gas range extender as an option. Workhorse plans on putting 2,000 all-electric vans on the road by the end of this year, and most of them will be for UPS.
