The new design is going to look like this:

The cars were unveiled in 2022, and the postal service plans to deploy 66,000 trucks by 2028.

The new trucks include advanced safety features, better driver ergonomics, and better fuel efficiency.

One tweet about the ergonomics is going viral:

According to the USPS, the windowsill on the right side of the mail truck needs to be as low as the mailbox so the postperson doesn't have to strain their arms or wrists. The new design fixes that.

The new windowsill also works for shorter people (5th percentile female) to taller people (95th percentile male), making sure everyone is able to deliver mail comfortably and efficiently.

As this person said, "This is what actual design looks like. Solving real problems for real people, not making things look cool."
