UPS adds 200 hybrid-electric delivery trucks: 3 things to know

The United Parcel Service will add 200 hybrid-electric delivery trucks to its fleet of vehicles, reports Truckinginfo.

Here are three things to know.

  1. The hybrid vehicles offer about four times more fuel economy than a gasoline-powered vehicle and contain a real time telematics performance monitoring system that offers information on energy and route efficiency, according to the report.

  2. UPS will deploy the trucks in January at locations in Arizona, Texas, Nevada, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Florida.
  3. The company first purchased 125 of these hybrid trucks in May as part of an effort to log 1 billion miles with alternative fuel and advanced-technology vehicles — a goal UPS accomplished in August.
