FedEx plans to use diesel hybrid trucks

Diesel-electric hybrid is a total no-brainer. They should just run those trucks on biodiesel! That would cut emissions even further.

The FedEx Express E700 hybrid electric vehicle decreases particulate emissions by 96 percent and travels 57 percent farther on a gallon of fuel than a conventional FedEx truck, reducing fuel costs by more than one third.

The project began four years ago when Environmental Defense, an organization recognized for its work with industry leaders to create environmental and business innovations, and FedEx Express began working together to create the next generation delivery vehicle.
