UPS to Deploy 40 Hydraulic Hybrid Vehicles

UPS Inc. announced the deployment of 40 new hydraulic hybrid package cars.

The vehicles’ hybrid power system combines a conventional diesel engine with a battery pack, UPS said Wednesday.

The vehicles can achieve up to 35% improved fuel economy and up to 30% reduction in CO2 emissions compared with traditional diesel-powered vehicles.

UPS said 20 of the vehicles will be used in Baltimore and 20 in Atlanta.

The Baltimore vehicles will be deployed immediately while those in Atlanta will be introduced by the end of the year, UPS said.

UPS is ranked No. 1 on the Transport Topics 100 listing of U.S. and Canadian for-hire carriers.
