Wrightspeed Secures Order from FedEx for 25 Hybrid Powertrains
Ten years ago, Ian Wright was trying to electrify the sports car with a startup he helped create — Tesla Motors.
Now the entrepreneur has set his sights on delivery vehicles and garbage trucks.
Wrightspeed, Wright’s company in San Jose, builds a kind of advanced hybrid powertrain for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. And the business has just landed its biggest deal to date: an order of 25 powertrains from global delivery giant FedEx. The company has already tried out Wrightspeed’s technology in two of its trucks and liked it enough to commission more.
