UPS plans to deploy 50 plug-in electric delivery trucks that will be comparable in acquisition cost to conventional-fueled trucks without any subsidies—an industry first that would breaki a key barrier to large scale adoption of electric fleets. Each truck will have a range of approximately 100 miles between charges, ideal for delivery routes in and around cities. —Steve Burns, CEO of Workhorse Group.
