The mail just got a little greener…
The postal service has deployed one of their new E-Bikes around downtown Fredericksburg.
The new platforms can carry 72 cubic feet of mail at 400 lbs., aided by a 500 wh electric battery that assists in powering the rear wheels. It also includes a security system and backup camera.
A LEV (light electric vehicle) is less than one-third the cost of a traditional mail truck.
