Abstract:
The technical and economic feasibility of an electric postal delivery vehicle is demonstrated and reported in this paper. Vehicle operational data are collected in a deployment of six prototype electric Long-Life Vehicles (ELLV) at postal sites in Torrance, California and Merrifield, Virginia, beginning in April, 1995. Eight months of data have been collected and are analyzed Extensive design trade studies and analyses are conducted to demonstrate the feasibility of achieving the maximum cost effectiveness of the ELLV Operating costs of the ELLV are compared to its internal combustion engine (ICE) counterpart.
