Postal Service Says It Could Buy More EVs If Congress Funded It – Bloomberg

Workers load mail into delivery vehicles outside a USPS distribution center in Chicago, Illinois.

The U.S. Postal Service said it could buy more electric vehicles if more funding were available, following Biden administration criticism of the agency’s plan to replace its fleet mainly with gas-powered delivery trucks.
The Postal Service plan includes an initial order for 5,000 electric vehicles and flexibility for more “should additional funding become available,” Postmaster General Louis DeJoy said in a news release Sunday. “Absent such funding, we must make fiscally responsible decisions.”
