UPS Adds 50 Hybrid Electrics To Fleet

UPS has expanded its fleet of alternative-fuel vehicles with the deployment of 50 next-generation hybrid electric delivery trucks.

The 50 hybrid electric vehicles will operate in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and Phoenix.

The 50 new HEV package cars are expected to reduce fuel consumption by roughly 44,000 gallons over the course of a year compared to an equivalent number of traditional diesel trucks.

The HEV fleet will feature two different size vehicles from Workhorse Custom Chassis and Freightliner LLC and a hybrid power system from Eaton Corporation.

UPS isn’t the only package delivery company greening its fleet – Fedex, for one, is adding similar vehicles to its fleet.

  1. Ok, good job ups. but why only fifty. go full Hybrid today. Congratulations, but why stop at fifty. convert your entire fleet over. this means less maintenance, less oil changes, longer life, and with the advances in Battery Developments(see AltAirNano) you can get your batteries for you Hybrid Electric Vehicle to last over 20 years and can fast charge in less than ten minutes without any over heating problems. the time is now. I drive a Toyota Prius Hybrid and I can drive over 400 miles on $20 Dollars worth of gasoline, and thats with gasoline prices at $3.40 per gallon. and I run ARCO’s 87 Octane and the Prius Loves it. This is a wonderful time. it looks like the Present is brighter than the Future. And it’s nice to see the Hype About Hydrogen isn’t something everyone’s waiting for. Because you can go green today with Hybrids. This is so exciting. I’m Proud to be an American. Thank you UPS, for doing the right thing, and saving the air we breathe, for breathing. As the old Gasoline Only cars just pollute our air we breathe too much!

  2. Charge……….. Come on UPS….You’re the man. Get that ball rolling. Let’s get electrified. I agee with the last comment. I love 50. Let’s make it 5000. And get those planes converted too. It’s more possible than you think.
