Amazon reveals first electric delivery van built for it by Rivian”

Amazon is lifting the hood on one of three custom-designed electric delivery vans it built in partnership with Rivian.

Amazon plans to ramp deployment of its all-electric fleet form here, starting with 10,000 custom vans on roads globally within the next two years, and then expanding to a total fleet size of that full 100,000 order by 2030, the company says.

The delivery van includes a number of driver assistance features, such as 360deg exterior cameras and sensors, and a "suite of highway and traffic assist technology".

Developed to "far surpass any other delivery vehicle", Amazon's electric van is packed with safety, navigation and design features.

The infotainment system is integrated with Amazon's Alexa assistance for hands-free operation.

Amazon Reveals Its First Customized All-Electric Delivery Vehicle

Rivian also intends to build and ship electric pickups and SUVs to consumers, on top of its commercial vehicle plans.

Amazon's van is characterized by its large windshield, which was selected to enhance driver visibility. The driver can access the cargo area through a bulkhead door which can easily be opened and closed for additional driver protection while on the road.

"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".

"We hope our custom-designed electric vehicle helps create a sense of urgency in the industry to think big about embracing sustainable technology and solutions - whether you're a package delivery company, a logistics company, an ice cream manufacturer, or nearly anyone else with vehicles on the road", declared Ross Rachey, the director of Global Fleet and Products. "We prioritized safety and functionality to create a vehicle that's optimized for package delivery".

Rachey said Amazon is also working on technology such as charging infrastructure to support the adoption of the electric vans. "We thought through how drivers get in and out of the van, what the work space feels like and what the work flow is for delivering packages".
