UPS to add new electric delivery trucks to fleet

UPS plans to deploy 50 electric delivery trucks as part of its fleet of brown vehicles, a move it expects could give a boost to adoption of electric vehicles across the industry.

Sandy Springs-based UPS in its Thursday announcement said the trucks – which it is partnering with electric vehicle manufacturer Workhorse Group Inc. to design -- will be comparable in cost to regular trucks, without any subsidies. 

The electric delivery trucks are expected to have a range of about 100 miles between charges, which UPS said is enough for many of its city delivery routes.
