Electric Trucks and Alt Fuel Fleets all around us.
Secretary Chu Announces Best Buy, Johnson Controls, Pacific Gas and Electric, and Veolia to Join National Clean Fleets Partnership!
There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t spot an Alt Fuel Truck or delivery vehicle on the road. Regularly I have seen UPS Hybrid Trucks in my neighborhood, but yesterday I spotted an all-electric Fedex delivery truck. It looked like no Fedex Truck I had seen before. Last month I reported on spotting a Fedex Hybrid Truck which looks like a regular Fedex Truck except for the writing on the side indicating it was a Hybrid truck. It makes sense that certain fleet vehicles such as postal vehicles, parking meter attendants, Garbage Trucks, local traffic enforcement, UPS, Fedex and short haul delivery vehicles and such should be the first to go Hybrid as such vehicles are constantly subject to stop and go driving.

Here is a press announcement that indicates that soon we will see thousands more such vehicles in our neighborhood:
