The odds are growing that the package you’ve been waiting for will be delivered in a truck powered by a battery.
Delivery giant UPS announced this week that it’s partnered with a small tech startup called Thor Trucks, based in Los Angeles, to create and test out an electric delivery vehicle.
The truck, a class 6 with a battery range of 100 miles, is supposed to be available later this year. UPS will test it out over a six-month period to determine whether it wants to make a larger purchase order.
