USPS Taps Ford’s E-Transit for Electrified Delivery Duty
And now Ford is the first manufacturer tapped for duty since this announcement, with the post office purchasing 9250 all-electric Ford E-Transits vans for delivery work. The E-Transits will remain left-hand-drive and will be specifically outfitted for urban parcel delivery, similar to the battery-electric vans employed by logistics giants Amazon and FedEx.
“Ford is proud to support the United States Postal Service in delivering a more sustainable future for America by electrifying their fleet with over 9200 E-Transit vans through the end of 2024. Built by our dedicated UAW workforce at the Kansas City Assembly Plant, vehicles will be operated by the largest electric fleet in the country serving communities on every street corner,” said Jim Farley, Ford president and CEO.
