UPS begins demonstration of walk in van

UPS has taken Electric Vehicles International’s walk in van for regional demonstrations.

Electric Vehicles International has worked with UPS over the last year to develop a specialised parcel delivery van.

Demonstrations of the EVI-WI will begin in Sacramento, before moving to San Franciso and Reno.

The EVI-WI is built on a Freightliner Custom Chassis glider with an Utilmaster body.

It has been approved by the California Air Resource Board and will offer buyers a $20,000 rebate through the Hybrid Truck and Bus Incentive Project.

Steve Riley, vice president of sales and marketing for EVI said: “We believe the 3 regional locations will help prove that our truck can perform in any setting from urban to hills and various climate conditions.”
