FedEx Tests All-Electric Trucks in LA

FedEx announced that four all-electric delivery trucks are slated to hit the road in the Los Angeles area starting in June 2010, joining more than 1,800 alternative-energy vehicles already in service for FedEx around the world, according to the company.

The company purchased these all-electric vehicles from two different suppliers to evaluate the technology and to provide information to help guide future FedEx vehicle purchases.  Two come from Navistar and are being assembled in Indiana. Another pair of electric vehicles is being purchased from a different manufacturer for delivery to the Los Angeles area later in 2010.

Both sets of electric vehicles are designed to allow couriers to make a full eight-hour shift of deliveries before needing recharging.
