Smith Electric
Kansas-based Smith Electric builds its all-electric delivery vans by adding battery packs and electric motors to truck frames and cabs imported from the Czech Republic.

Since the trucks can't easily be driven long distances -- range is about 100 miles on a charge -- Smith plans to build as many as 20 assembly points around the country to ease delivery to their customers.

NEXT: Navistar
