Japan Post to replace their entire fleet with EVs

Some interesting news I stumbled across. Japan Post has announced they will be replacing their entire delivery fleet with EVs over the next 8 years.

This is on top of news that both UKMail and UPS are both testing Modec electric delivery trucks in the UK. France's Le Poste announced a five-year plan to replace the bulk of its 48,000-vehicle fleet with electric cars back in March 2007.

It looks like businesses are seeing the cost benefits of EVs as the cost of oil rockets sky high.
