Postal Service – Preparing to upgrade fleet, could it be an electric and drone filled future?

04/22/2015

2015/04/22 Manufacturing.net reports “USPS officials recently named finalists for an upcoming vehicle contract amid reports that the agency’s current fleet is nearing the end of its shelf life.

The list includes household names in vehicle manufacturing, including Ford, Fiat Chrysler, Nissan and AM General of Army Humvee fame. The Postal Service, however, also tabbed Workhorse Group, a Cincinnati-based vehicle maker.”

Considering the size of the USPS fleet, what could the choice of electric vehicles mean to the average car buyer? Beyond electric, maybe a future filled with drones?
