Elec­tric fleets

Herald Sun - Motoring - - Big Wheels -

US COM­PA­NIES such as Pep­siCo, FedEx, Sta­ples and AT&T have bought fleets of small elec­tric trucks from start-up com­pa­nies in­clud­ing Smith Elec­tric Ve­hi­cles of Kansas. The trucks come with a price pre­mium of more than $30,000 but op­er­a­tors be­lieve they will save money when run­ning costs are taken into ac­count. Sta­ples es­ti­mates sav­ings will add up to $60,000 over the 10-year life­span of the elec­tric trucks.
