Just because they are out of ICE production doesn't mean they won't use them. They have used other peoples engines in the past.

So the Post Office just signed a 10 year contract for new vehicles and apparently most of them will be ICE. I can't think of a more appropriate use for an electric vehicle than mail delivery. I don't know what the breakdown of the vehicles ordered is but this order really surprises me, especially under the new administration.

If the vehicle, whatever vehicle it is, is the same cost, has the same performance, and the same longevity, why care about the propulsion. So far, available range and recharging time are putting people off.

At one time we were told the V8 engine would be out of production soon. Now they are back bigger than ever. Godzilla!

Regardless of what the unicorn fart sniffers hope or wish for, the most likely scenario is that ICEs and EVs will probably co-exist for a good long time together. Partly because of the much varied use of vehicles of all shapes and sizes. He!!, we can't even let go of fax machines. Had to transmit some documents to prominent business (an urgent care center) in backasswards Northern WI and HAD to FAX the docs!

Regardless, it's a natural progression and it may or may not prove to be the best solution in any or some scenarios.

What is interesting though, is the recent proliferation of both corporate and government self imposed "mandates" about ending ICE vehicles sales and production.
Methinks it's not coincidental that this has happened only since say, last month? Gotta dance with the one that brung ya! And you don't want to be p!ss!n off the one who can bail you out!

It remains to be seen how many end up being electric since the platform supports both. DeJoy said only 10% of the fleet would be, but that's at odds with Biden's new electrification order

On average, the current LLV vehicles the USPS uses travels around 20 miles per day. Which is well within range of any EV, which excel at stop and go driving.

In rural areas I'm sure they travel much farther, my parent's mailbox is over a mile from the nearest neighbor... but their postman drives a Subaru, not a mail truck.

Maybe sooner than you think.
