Hydrogen Delivery Vans

Delivery giant UPS is set to start using three hydrogen fuel cell medium-duty delivery vans, one each in Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Ann Arbor. This will be the first time medium-duty fuel cell vehicles will be in mainstream use in the US. They have acceleration equivalent to gas or diesel vans, but have 10% more cargo capacity than the diesel medium trucks UPS now uses, and should have a much longer-lasting drive train, reducing maintenance costs. Of course, UPS has 88,000 vehicles, so this is a very tentative start, but if the technology lives up to its promise in the field, we should see a more rapid adoption down the road.
