FedEx Express said Monday it is buying 51 more gas-electric hybrid pickup and delivery vehicles from Azure Dynamics Corp. Most will serve a Bronx station that will become the first all-hybrid FedEx facility with about 100 trucks.

FedEx expects a 30 percent improvement in fuel efficiency from the hybrid step-van, which features electric-launch assist, engine-off at idle and regenerative braking.

The purchase brings to 325 FedEx’s fleet of hybrid electric and electric vehicles.
