USPS Selects Ford for Electric Vehicle Contract

The company was competitively chosen to produce 9,250 service vehicles for the fleet.

The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has awarded its contracts for 9,250 new electric USPS delivery vehicles to Ford after a competitive search that began in December 2022. If the agency successfully completes its Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement on its expected timeline, the vehicles are expected to be completed and delivered by December 2023.

“We are moving forward with our plans to simultaneously improve our service, reduce our cost, grow our revenue, and improve the working environment for our employees. Electrification of our vehicle fleet is now an important component of these initiatives,” said Postmaster General  Louis DeJoy. “We have developed a strategy that mitigates both cost and risk of deployment – which enable execution on this initiative to begin now.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Postmaster DeJoy as he leads the U.S. Postal Service.
  • For wisdom for the president and his advisors as they pursue electric vehicle initiatives.
  • For U.S. officials to be prudent regarding the benefits and liabilities of switching sources of power.
