UPS adds hybrid vehicles

The additional 130 vehicles will go to New York, New Jersey and California. The Sandy Springs-based logistics company has 250 hybrid electric vehicles in the U.S.

The new hybrids look similar to the company's existing brown trucks. UPS said the new vehicles represent a 35 percent improvement in fuel economy and will save more than 66,000 gallons of fuel annually.

UPS said it has spent $25 million on alternatively fueled vehicles, which it operates in nine countries.
