United Parcel Service announced the rollout of California’s largest electric-vehicle fleet Tuesday morning at its West Sacramento hub.
California Gov. Jerry Brown joined leaders from UPS (NYSE: UPS), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Stockton vehicle manufacturer Electric Vehicles International at the UPS distribution center on Shore Street to mark the occasion.
UPS is deploying 100 zero-emission, all-electric delivery vehicles that will deliver packages throughout the state.
The fleet of trucks will help California achieve widespread deployment of zero-emission vehicles, as called for under an executive order by the governor.
