The BBC reports that the French postal service, or La Poste, is testing out electric vehicles to replace their current diesel fuel-powered vans. They are requesting quotes for the first batch of an expected 10,000 French-made electric vehicles, predominately from SVE and Heuliez, the latter of which is an electric vehicle manufacturer, the former is owned by the defense group Dassault. I do not know any more about the specifications of the vehicles, but the article quotes La Poste chairman Jean-Paul Bailly as saying, "According to our tests, it is six times cheaper to run an electric vehicle than a diesel vehicle." He also expects that greenhouse gas emissions should drop by a large margin. Thanks for the tip, Rick!
