The group wants to try out about 50 vehicles in ten Polish cities, with the tests to take three to six months.

Jerzy Garycki, responsible for Poczta Polska’s logistics, said that the trials would take place next year.

Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported that vehicles powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) would be tested as well as electric vehicles.

If the trials prove a success, Poczta Polska could introduce such vehicles into its fleet in two or three years, IAR added.

Last year, the Polish government announced it would offer tax and other incentives to owners of electric vehicles in a bid to have one million electric cars on the country’s roads by 2025. Poland is seeking to cut carbon emissions from transport.
