The U.S. Postal Service is vowing to deploy over 66,000 electric vehicles by 2028, greatly expanding prior plans that critics called too timid, Ben writes.

Why it matters: It will be a big and very visible sign of the electrification of government and corporate fleets.

It comes as private giants including Amazon — which has already started deploying Rivian vans — are beginning to go electric.

The intrigue: The plan resolves a “long-running dispute with the Biden administration over how quickly the agency should clean up its fleet of iconic white, red and blue mail trucks,” the NYT reports.

Zoom in: The plan announced yesterday by the USPS will represent a $9.6 billion investment, including $3 billion via the new climate law.

The 66,000 will be over half the expected 106,000 delivery vehicle acquisitions between now and 2028.

“Acquisitions delivered in 2026 through 2028 expected to be 100% electric,” USPS said. The Washington Post has more.
