Frito-Lay says it will cut fuel con­sump­tion by 500,000 gal­lons annu­al­ly once it deploys 176 elec­tric trucks this year in the U.S. and Cana­da, mak­ing Frito-Lay the largest com­mer­cial fleet of all-elec­tric trucks in North Amer­i­ca. Designed by Smith Elec­tric Vehi­cles, the trucks gen­er­ate zero tailpipe emis­sions and oper­ate for up to 100 miles on a sin­gle charge.
