Amazon Rolls Out its First Electric Delivery Van - Design News

Online shopping giant Amazon aims to deploy 100,000 electric vans built by EV specialist Rivian.

Amazon is aiming to make its signature gray electric-powered delivery vans the iconic parcel truck of the 21st century, much as the ubiquitous brown UPS truck filled that role in the 20th century.

The first step in that journey was Amazon’s receipt of its very first electric van from EV manufacturer Rivian. The shift of the fleet to electric power is part of Amazon’s commitment to be net-zero carbon by 2040.

To achieve that, the online shopping giant aims to have 10,000 of the custom-designed vans on the road by 2022 and to replace its entire 100,000-vehicle fleet with electric models by 2030.

For urban environments I think electric delivery vehicles is the way to go.
