    UPS adds 130 hybrids to fleet - Atlanta Business Chronicle

    The Atlanta-based package shipper said 30 will be used in New York and 100 will be put to work in California.

    It estimated the HEVs will save 66,085 gallons of fuel and 671 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually, representing a 35 percent improvement in fuel economy. That’s the equivalent of 128 passenger cars being taken off the road, UPS said.

    UPS (NYSE: UPS) now operates 2,022 alternative-fuel vehicles and has spent more than $25 million to develop that fleet.
