I saw something posted on Twitter from someone who was involved with a competing design. He stated that the design was inevitably going to end up looking something like that because of the USPS's specs (ex., have to be able to reach a mailbox while sitting in the driver's seat, not have a blindspot up front, certain height/width/length limitations, cargo volume, etc.).

I'll say this -- it will be distinctive.

I am sure you are correct Postmaster, But in my opinion Walkman should have won the bid. His truck is self driving, and knowing "Cars" self delivering.
Cheers

I did click the link and you end up having to clear at least 3 ad overlays to read it.

This design would have come with the added benefit of greatly improved service. It was rejected however.
