FedEx orders 1,000 Chanje electric delivery trucks

FedEx Corp. has announced that its fleet will add 1,000 Chanje V8100 electric delivery vehicles.

The company will purchase 100 of the vehicles from Chanje Energy Inc., and lease 900 from Ryder System, Inc. The electric vehicles will be operated by FedEx Express for commercial and residential pick-up and delivery services in the United States.

“FedEx continually seeks new ways to maximize operational efficiency, minimize impacts and find innovative solutions through the company’s ‘Reduce, Replace, Revolutionize’ approach to sustainability,” said Mitch Jackson, FedEx chief sustainability officer. “Our investment in these vehicles is part of our commitment to that approach of serving our customers and connecting the world responsibly and resourcefully.”

The EVs can travel more than 150 miles when fully charged and have the potential to help FedEx save 2,000 gal. of fuel while avoiding 20 tons of emissions per vehicle each year, the companies say. The maximum cargo capacity is around 6,000 lbs. All of the vehicles will be operated in California.
