About this Deal
Amazon has revealed its first custom electric delivery vehicle, designed and built in partnership with Rivian, and expects to have 10,000 of the new vans on the road delivering to customers as early as 2022.
In support of The Climate Pledge commitment to be net-zero carbon by 2040, Amazon expects to have 100,000 of the vehicles on the road by 2030. This is one of three different models that Amazon has invested in, and completely customized with Rivian, to save millions of metric tons of carbon per year while enhancing the driver experience and optimizing safety.
"When we set out to create our first customized electric delivery vehicle with Rivian, we knew it needed to far surpass any other delivery vehicle. We wanted drivers to love using it and customers to feel excited when they saw it driving through their neighborhood and pulling up to their home," said Ross Rachey, Director of Amazon's Global Fleet and Products. "We combined Rivian's technology with our delivery logistics knowledge, and the result is what you see here-the future of last mile delivery."
