The current fleet of U.S. Postal Service (USPS) trucks is old and has been in urgent need of a replacement for some time. The agency is buying 165,000 new trucks but has come under fire for doing so. The trucks in production from Oshkosh Defense are critically late and very pricey, with poor fuel economy ratings. Additionally, only 10% of them are projected to be electric.

Why is the USPS buying trucks that get such poor gas mileage that they’re barely legal? Were these trucks intentionally designed to poorly manage fuel costs and pollution?
