Parcel delivery is showing little sign of slowing down as eCommerce keeps companies busy delivering packages, so UPS has partnered with UK-based startup Arrival to create new electric delivery vehicles.

The new fleet of emissions-free trucks are set to be rolled out in London and Paris this year to help curb pollution in these major urban areas. The trucks come as the brand's latest endeavor since it started investing in "alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles" in 2009, which has seen over 9,000 alternative technology trucks taking to roads around the world.

The UPS electric delivery vehicles are said to have a range of 150 miles per charge and will feature a wrap-around windshield to help increase visibility for drivers.
