    UPS orders 12 Modec electric vehicles for use in UK, Germany - Automotive Business Review

    United Parcel Service has placed an order for 12 electric vehicles from zero-emission van manufacturer Modec. Six vehicles will be introduced into the company's UK fleet in February 2009, including the vehicle that was used during the testing phase. The remaining six will operate in Germany.

    The order follows a successful nine-month trial of the vehicle's capabilities earlier in 2008, where it averaged 18 miles per day and a battery consumption of 25% of full charge per day during the course of its operations in north-west, east and central London
