Online delivery giants Amazon report that they have fully 1,000 all-electric Rivian delivery vans on the road, delivering packages, today!
Since the company first began rolling out the Rivian-built electric vans in July, the zero-emissions trucks have delivered more than 5 million packages to customers in more than a dozen cities across the US, including Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Nashville, San Diego and Seattle.
This fall, Amazon expanded its electric delivery fleet even further, and now has more than 1,000 electric delivery vehicles (EDVs) making deliveries in several more cities. Amazon customers can expect to begin spotting the vans delivering gifts and packages to doorsteps Austin, Boston, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Madison, Newark, New York, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Portland, Provo and Salt Lake City as the holiday season rolls on.
“We’re always excited for the holiday season, but making deliveries to customers across the country with our new zero-emission vehicles for the first time makes this year unique,” says Udit Madan, vice president of Amazon Transportation. “We’ve already delivered over 5 million packages with our vehicles produced by Rivian, and this is still just the beginning—that figure will grow exponentially as we continue to make progress toward our 100,000-vehicle goal.”
In addition to the ongoing electrification of the company’s US delivery fleet, Amazon recently announced plans to invest more than $1 billion over the next five years to further electrify and decarbonize its transportation network across Europe.
