During a recent business presentation, revealed that its electric delivery fleet now includes a whopping 10,000 Rivian vehicles traversing routes not only across the United States but also in Europe. This substantial milestone showcases Amazon’s continued dedication to integrating sustainable practices into its operations.

Amazon solidified its commitment to electrifying its delivery fleet by partnering with electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer Rivian with an ambitious goal of putting at least 100,000 electric delivery vans on the road by 2030. As of July, Amazon had already surpassed the halfway mark with over 5,000 electric delivery vans actively in service.

This update aligns with Rivian’s recent upward revision of its 2023 production forecast to an impressive 52,000 vehicles for the full year, reflecting the company’s focus on scaling up operations to meet the growing demand for electric vehicles.

Highlighting the impact of their partnership, Amazon announced that they have completed a remarkable 150 million deliveries utilizing Rivian vans. This achievement underscores the significant role that Rivian’s electric vehicles have played in furthering Amazon’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint and embracing sustainable transportation solutions.

In addition to their collaboration with Rivian, Amazon has diversified its electrification efforts by working with Volvo to incorporate heavy-duty electric trucks into their middle-mile delivery fleet. Volvo, in a collaborative effort, pledged to provide 20 EV trucks to bolster Amazon’s sustainable logistics operations.

As the world continues to emphasize sustainable practices and environmentally friendly solutions, Amazon’s strategic partnership with Rivian remains a testament to their dedication to lead the charge in the transition towards electric and sustainable delivery options, aiming for a greener and more efficient future.
