PRESS RELEASE

September 09, 2015: UPS today launched its first range-extended electric delivery van for initial trials in the UK, developed in collaboration with TEVVA Motors. Range-extending technology allows the electric vehicle to go further, serving routes that would otherwise be beyond the capability of a conventional electric type.

The vehicle will first be deployed in Barking, East London. It will operate in a suburban environment, covering about 100km to 150km per day. The prototype will initially run for 12 months to assess the potential for the vehicle to be used more widely in UPS operations.

Since June 2014, UPS has worked with TEVVA Motors to develop a prototype as part of UPS's growing investment in alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles. A small, highly efficient diesel engine acts as a generator to recharge the batteries if they become depleted out on the road. This significantly increases the range of the vehicle, potentially by several hundred kilometres, on top of its normal range of 75km to 100 km without range extension.

"With around 5,800 alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles worldwide, sustainability is more than a practice at UPS, it's a value. This vehicle highlights our commitment to integrating new technologies into our delivery fleet," says Peter Harris, sustainability director, UPS Europe. "Finding the best, most responsible fleet solutions to suit our business and serve our customers is an important part of our sustainability strategy.
