US Postal Service EV fleet taking shape with new contracts
The federal government agency has just announced agreements with Ford Motor Co. and three electric vehicle (EV) charging companies. Besides acquiring 9,250 Ford E-transit vans, the agency will install 14,000 charging stations through contracts announced with Blink Charging, Siemens Industry Inc, and Rexel USA Energy Solutions.
While the charging station agreements total $260 million, USPS announced just over $1 billion in vehicle acquisition contracts. The latter, however, does include an additional 9,250 internal combustion (ICE) vans from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) North America of the Stellantis Group.
