Cummins delivers electric vehicles to U.S. Postal Service

Cummins Inc. is delivering eight all-electric vehicles to the U.S. Postal Service, the company announced Monday.

The fully-electric Cummins PowerDrive equipped vans are expected to eliminate vehicle emissions and reduce fuel and maintenance costs. The pilot program, made possible by a grant from the California Air Resources Board to the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District and administered by CALSTART, will place the zero-emission vehicles in Fresno and Stockton.

Cummins will also provide operator training, vehicle support and data collection to support the program, the company said.
