Logistics company FedEx has received its first 150 electric vans from BrightDrop, a General Motors (GM) tech start-up with a goal of zero CO2 delivery and parcel service. This is a key milestone for FedEx as the company aims to convert its entire pickup and delivery fleet to all-electric vehicles by 2040.
The first 150 electric vans BrightDrop Zevo 600 have been shipped to FedEx Express, one of the world's largest express delivery courier companies. Powered by GM's Ultium all-electric platform, the Zevo 600 is designed to deliver the "last mile" with an estimated range of up to 250 miles on a full charge. The first 150 vehicles are part of a larger agreement between FedEx and BrightDrop, under which FedEx plans to integrate a total of 2,500 Zevo 600 into its operations in the coming years.
