The Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking into four packages that were recently sent to four different Toyota manufacturing facilities over the past week. Investigators eventually determined that there was nothing harmful or threatening in the packages, but not before Toyota evacuated its North American headquarters in Kentucky on Friday. According to Reuters, the packages were described as suspicious, but neither the FBI nor Toyota seem to think the incident was any kind of threat.
The United States Congress has yet to pass any of the proposed appropriations that would fund a massive electrification drive by the U.S. Postal Service. Nonetheless, the post office is moving ahead with a test program in Washington, D.C. that will see some of the ubiquitous white boxes be converted to battery power.
A month ago Rep. Jose E. Serrano (D-NY) introduced a bill in the U.S. house of representatives that if passed would provide up to $2 billion to the United States Postal Service (USPS) for vehicle electrification. The money would be used to convert up to 15 percent of the agency's 142,000 vehicle fleet to plug-in capability.
