As part of this effort, FedEx Express is working with the Advanced Vehicle Testing group at Argonne National Laboratory, using its Advanced Powertrain Research Facility to test and compare different models of electric vehicles, collecting performance data under various operating conditions. Argonne will collect the electric energy consumption of the vehicles to help determine the total cost of operating an electric vehicle fleet. The U.S. Department of Energy has also provided funding for this testing initiative. Read more.
