FedEx to double the size of its electric vehicle fleet: "
With a whopping 19 electric vehicles, FedEx's battery-powered fleet isn't all that big. But, with FedEx Express adding more than 4,000 fuel-efficient vehicles within the next two months - including 24 of the electric-only variety - the package delivery company's fleet of electrics will soon more than double in size to, drumroll, 43 units.
FedEx Express says it will place two dozen electric-only vehicles into service in three cities and, at the same time, will add hybrid-electrics, composite vehicles and upgrade more than ten percent of its existing fleet to more fuel-efficient package-transporting machines.
As for those electric-only vehicles, FedEx Express says they will join the company's fleets in New York City, Chicago, IL, Memphis, TN and Los Angeles, CA. FedEx's mix of electric vehicles includes 15 Navistar eStars (pictured), two Freightliner eCells, two converted Freightliners and five Ford Transit Connect Electric vans.
