UPS just announced that it has purchased 100 electric delivery vans for deployment in California, making it the single-largest implementation of zero-emissions delivery vehicles in the state of California. UPS says that because its vans rack up so many miles, replacing lots of older diesel-fueled trucks with the EVs will reduce UPS' need for fuel by an estimated 126,000 gallons a year.
