The streets of Paris and London are about to get a whole lot cuter — and eco-friendlier — because UPS is deploying adorable electric trucks that look like something straight out of a cartoon Carl The Super Truck!

The mail carrier company is teaming up with UK-based technology company Arrival to launch a state-of-the-art fleet what it calls a “pilot fleet” of 35 electric trucks.

The lightweight, composite vehicles have a range of 150 miles, and each truck includes driver-assist technology that will help keep the roads safer.

Here are the details from UPS:

These zero-tailpipe emission, lightweight composite vehicles have a battery range of more than 150 miles (240 kilometers), which is significantly higher than other EVs currently in service. The vehicles will also come equipped with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that help to improve safety and reduce driver fatigue. These features combined with a highly advanced vehicle display provide the driver with an intelligent and connected vehicle.

“UPS is working with ARRIVAL here in the UK because their smart electric vehicles are helping to reduce dependency on fossil fuel. This is a pioneering collaboration that helps UPS develop new ways to reduce our emissions,” said Luke Wake, international director for automotive engineering in the advanced technology group at UPS. “UPS is marshaling its global scale to encourage innovation within the automotive industry. We are helping to drive demand for these disruptive technologies. The result is a safer and cleaner fleet for the communities in which we deliver.”

According to UPS, they have been working with ARRIVAL since 2016 and have developed a number of different prototypes of various sizes. Seems like lot of shit is going on in there. Phewww…….

In a statement, ARRIVAL CEO Denis Sverdlov said 

We’re excited to collaborate with UPS to create an affordable, modular, fully electric delivery vehicle designed to make deliveries in our busy cities clean and quiet.” He added, “With its unique, wrap-around front window the driver has a much wider field of view that improves not only the safety of the driver but also that of cyclists and pedestrians.”

A Happy Ending for all………. The first vehicles are slated to hit the road by the end of this year….that is 2018(for those who are bit confused)
