The Postal Service has released its Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for Next Generation Delivery Vehicles Acquisitions. The Postal Service proposes in this Draft SEIS to modify the current purchase plan in three primary ways: (1) substantially increase the minimum BEV commitment to 62 percent, (2) reduce the total number of vehicles proposed for purchase at this time to 106,480, purchased over six years, and (3) include a mix of both NGDV and commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) vehicles.

The Postal Service is soliciting comments on the Draft SEIS during a 45-day public comment period. Comments should be received no later than August 14, 2023.

In addition, the Postal Service will also conduct a virtual public hearing on July 26, 2023. Registration information will be made available 15 days prior to the hearing date at the following website: http://uspsngdveis.com/​.
