US Postal Service goes hybrid

The USPS is unveiling a hybrid delivery vehicle, powered by Azure's hybrid electric powertrain at a special event being held in Boston. According to one source, every one cent increase in gas prices translates into an annual $8 million increase in gasoline costs.

According to the press release, this will be the USPS first converted hybrid electric vehicle. The event will showcase learning about hybrid technology as well as other alternative-fuel vehicles. Sott Wimmer, NASCAR driver will be available for photographs.

Hear remarks from Walter O’Tormey, vice president, engineering, USPS; and Campbell Deacon, CEO, Azure Dynamics Corporation. Azure Dynamics is a developer of electric and hybrid electric powertrain systems. These systems can convert conventional Postal Service mail-delivery trucks to hybrids.
