It’s great to hear that US delivery service UPS is on-board with the EV revolution.
It’s ordered 35 new delivery trucks from UK technology firm ARRIVAL. They’ll be trialled in the UK and France first, and operate with a total of zero exhaust emissions.
They’ll have a battery range of 250km and a host of extra tech including Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to manage safety and driver fatigue.
All of which is very laudable. And it isn’t even UPS’s first foray into EVs. It’s ordered 125 of those Tesla semitrailers which it hopes will be built next year, and overall to date has invested nearly a billion dollars in some 1000 EVs and hybrid vehicles.
So what’s new here?

They save money, they produce zero emissions, the driver has excellent vision in all directions, and they're cute. What more could you ask for?
