The United States Postal Service has rolled out their next-generation design for their mail truck -- and it's definitely weird looking. The service is looking to the future with a multi-billion dollar overhaul to its fleet and the new design by Oshkosh Defence will reduce the USPS fleet’s costs and greenhouse gas emissions with cleaner technologies, such as more fuel-efficient engines and electric powertrains.

The Internet HATED it. Sure, it looks like something Mr. Incredible would drive straight off the Pixar lot -- but we certainly have come a long way from the Jeeps of the 1950s or, you know, horses. The first Next-Generation Delivery Vehicles (NGDV) are set to begin service in 2023.
