In an effort to make the United States Post Office (USPS) more environmentally friendly, Oshkosh Defense has been chosen to build the next generation of mail delivery vehicles.
Oshkosh Defense will manufacture both zero-emission battery electric vehicles and fuel-efficient low-emission internal combustion engine vehicles, that will sustainably upgrade the USPS fleet.
The new vehicles are set to begin production in 2023, as the USPS hopes to roll out between 50,000 and 165,000 vehicles on American streets.

Here’s how the internet responded to the new trucks:

These new mail trucks are cute and a definite upgrade from the current ones that are as old as I am, but all I see is Dr. Finkelstein from Nightmare Before Christmas. pic.twitter.com/Vm1T24aes2
