Spy Shots: New Look at the Karsan Mail Truck Prototype

June 18, 2018

Trucks.com spy photographers caught the U.S Postal Service mail truck prototype built by Turkish automaker Karsan Otomotive outside a test track in the Midwest recently.

New photos of the vehicle driving on public roads in East Liberty, Ohio, reveal unique features such as defrosters embedded in the side windows, which has never been seen on a mail truck prototype before. In fact, a side window defroster is not available on any production passenger car today.

The USPS is evaluating vehicles from five teams as it readies a contract for a new generation mail truck. Karsan entered the competition in a partnership with U.S. van manufacturer Morgan Olson. The deal is expected to be worth more than $6 billion.
