In an effort to be a more sustainable brand, UPS has teamed up with UK technology company Arrival to develop a fleet of 35 modular electric delivery vehicles, reports The Verge.
Flaunting a sleeker boxy profile, the lightweight electric vehicle is adorned with a wraparound front window, offering a wider view for the driver. In addition, its notable features consist of a battery range of over 150 miles, zero tailpipe emissions, an advanced vehicle display, and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that aids driver safety and helps lower fatigue.
UPS also shared that the vehicle’s range is higher than other EVs used in logistics services, and has been working with Arrival since 2016 on developing differently sized prototypes. Since 2009, UPS has invested $750 million into high-tech and alternative fuel vehicles.
Expect to see these modular electric delivery vehicles in action soon, as trial runs in London and Paris are slated before the end of 2018.
