Hi folks. Logistics giant UPS added a new type of delivery truck to its UK fleet, which it developed in collaboration with UK-based electric truck startup Tevva.

The range-extended electric vehicles (REEVs) feature a dual power system: In one mode, the trucks operate using only electricity, and in the other, they draw power from a diesel-hybrid powertrain.

The REEVs are expected to help UPS get closer to achieving its larger ambition of reducing reliance on traditional transportation energy sources.

The new truck will enable the firm to comply with regulations in certain UK municipalities where commercial vehicles will be required to run on electric energy starting in 2020.

Telemental Health Report

The US is in the midst of a swelling mental health crisis that's expected to slam the healthcare system with $238 billion in costs in 2020.
