Brown goes green in NYC: Full-sized UPS EV truck - AutoblogGreen
It's not the only EV truck UPS have:
Whereas the one in the ABG story has a range of 15 miles, the Modec uses Li ion batteries and has a range of 100 miles.
The company is headed by Jamie Borwick who owns Oxis Energy (developing Lithium Sulphide batteries) and was ex-Chairman of the company that builds London taxis.
I see quite a few of the Tesco variant of these trucks around London now.
Sounds like the US is reinventing the wheel with a NIH attitude.

Looks like Modec and UPS don't have the monopoly on electric parcel delivery vans. TNT have ordered 150 Smith 7.5 ton trucks after a succesful trial. That's a huge vote of confidence.
