First Electric Delivery Vans to Hit the Road in 2021: Jeff Bezos

Amazon recently announced the idea of including about 100,000 battery-electric delivery vans for prime deliveries by 2024. In this video at Bloomberg Technology, Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos unveils, “It’s the first electric vehicle delivery van that will go on the road in 2021. We may have a couple of prototypes on the road next year, but it will actually start happening in 2021.” The e-commerce giant will purchase all these vehicles from Rivian Automotive Inc. This deal follows a $700 million investment in Rivian by Amazon earlier this year. With this project, Amazon would hit a target of using about 80 percent renewable energy by 2024 and 100 percent by 2030, up from the current 40 percent.
