    I was a bit overly excited to see this in our little town (Leesburg, VA). It would be great if the USPS switched entirely to EVs!

    It's probably even better if in the future they used a sexier, lower cost, more American car like the Tesla Model 3.

    Yes, the USPS really cares about sexiness. That's why they have been using these things for the last 30 years.

    Plus how are you gonna fit those big, bulky boxes through the 3's small trunk opening? ;)

    it's about time! if businesses like the post office, utility companies and those with low speed routes would have done this years ago the EV market would have gained traction sooner

    When I think about it, the daily routes would be well within the charge limit of the vehicle, the cost of wasted energy in all the idling that it does in a day, would probably make good economic sense. Not to mention intangibles like green branding, etc
