The U. S. Postal Service is considering potential suppliers for its Electric Vehicle (EV) conversion of Long Life Vehicles (LLVs).
The USPS is actively evaluating various alternative vehicle technologies for the eventual replacement of our fleet of delivery vehicles. One technology with a good potential is an all-electric drive train. The majority of our vehicles have a route length of less than 20 miles and park overnight for approximately 16 hours daily.
The 142,000 LLVs in our fleet operate in each of the 50 States, delivering mail in a wide range of weather conditions and over a variety of urban terrain. Though still not optimal, the LLV design has developed over decades of postal deliveries and continues to be improved upon.
