Safety technology is another crucial component characterizing the USPS’ Next-Generation Delivery Vehicle.

The mail service’s fleet will contain Bluetooth, collision avoidance features, 360-degree cameras, backup sensors and cameras — plus self-parking.

The Next-Generation Delivery Vehicle’s 2023 Consumer Electronics Show exhibit includes a massive 20 feet by 30 feet media wall display showing elements of the postal company’s modernization.

Four new variants of the USPS’ Next-Generation Delivery Vehicle will enter service at the end of 2023, Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Two variants will be gas-powered, while the others receive an electric drivetrain.

USPS said 10,019 of the 50,000 Next-Generation Delivery Vehicles they ordered for $2.98billion would be electric.

Too low to the ground for snow.

So its a replay of the LLV design a jack of all trades by committee and in that case the narrow front wheelbase which made it great for parking in good conditions made it a deathtrap in the snow.

All great features but with all of those electronic features comes the above average risk of them breaking down, USPS delivery vehicles need to have a life span of 20+ years and these vehicle don’t look like they will make it that long without lots of $$$.
