UPS unveiled a battery-powered, four-wheeled cycle to more efficiently haul cargo in some of the country's most congested streets and reduce its carbon footprint.The slimmed-down vehicles, called eQuads by UPS, look familiar enough with the company's gold-colored logo and accompanying stripe on a dark brown background.The pedal-powered vehicle was dwarfed by one of the company's more traditional delivery trucks. UPS said a trial run is focused on New York City and in several cities in Europe.The company now has a fleet of more than 1,000 electric vehicles and it is trying to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.
