Coco-Cola will expand diesel-electric hybrid delivery fleet
Back in 2008, The Coca-Cola Company operated 120 hybrid delivery trucks. By the end of 2010, that number will have risen to more than 600 diesel-electrics. In the coming years, the beverage giant will add more hybrid trucks and even hopes to ditch its conventional fleet of cars and SUVs and replace them with gas-electric autos.
Scott Seale, district supervisor at Coca Cola's Yorktown Sales Center, says that the company's hybrids trucks "are quieter and much easier to drive" and adds that the diesel-electric setup offers a no compromise solution that significantly reduces fuel consumption.
