alice80 February 25, 2021 08:48 AM This does NOT have enough clearance to go over the speed bumps in my city (the 2nd largest in NJ) HighlanderJuan February 25, 2021 09:40 AM If this is to be a universal mail delivery truck, I hope there is/are some improved provisions for winter snow delivery conditions. That seems to be one of the problems with the current delivery trucks. Username February 25, 2021 09:43 AM There have been many electric delivery vehicle highlighted on here. So with many choices available, the post office chooses the most ridiculous looking ice driven monstrosity available.

BlueOak February 25, 2021 10:06 AM One wonders what the price is of that huge curved windshield part? To replace. Clearly attractive styling was not a requirement. And these things rarely drive over 35-45 mph so aerodynamics was not a thing. So why not a two part flat glass windscreen? BlueOak February 25, 2021 10:07 AM @alice, good point on the ground clearance. Even the current USPS vehicle gets hung up in snow and stuck all the time soured here. This new one won’t help that scenario. DavidB February 25, 2021 10:21 AM This is the same Louis DeJoy who effectively hamstrung the USPS in his efforts to thwart the will of the American people, shutting down and high-speed sorting machines and removing public mail drop-off boxes. He's not a guy you want running the USPS, and his enthusiasm for this contract immediately makes me wonder how much money is in the deal for him and/or his cronies. Douglas Bennett Rogers February 25, 2021 10:30 AM In view of its financial condition the USPS should be buying USED trucks. FB36 February 25, 2021 01:49 PM "next-generation delivery truck, which will be built in both gasoline and electric powertrain variants"Our world already needs to start producing biodiesel fuel (from all kinds of waste/biomass/trash/sewage), at large scales, for all heavy trucks, trains, ships, tractors, bulldozers, tanks, etc!(Biodiesel can be converted to jet fuel also!)& if so then, would not be best to try to get away from gasoline engines & choose diesel engines instead, as much as possible (for all fleet vehicles)? Derek Howe February 25, 2021 06:01 PM Wasted opportunity by not going electric, which excels at slow speeds & stop n go traffic.Workhorse should of gotten the whole contract...not a defense contractor. (guess it's all about who you know). Good call Biden.
