Amazon - Rivian E-Trucks & Rickshaws

Post by DaveBerlin » Sat Oct 17, 2020 7:33 pm

I posted this comment in Feb 19 on the Rivian Co. and the Tie Up with Amazon which now seems that Jeff Bezos is planning for these new E-Vehicles. Our deliveries will be even quicker now 🧐 - Dave 🙂

“Digital retailer and entertainment giant Amazon is getting into the auto business. Electric truck and SUV startup Rivian said it has a deal for an equity investment round of $700 million led by Amazon. Amazon has become interested in the auto business and recently invested in autonomous driving startup Aurora. Rivian’s technology could represent a potential opportunity for Amazon to shape electric delivery vehicles to support its own logistics effort.”

“Amazon has revealed its first custom electric delivery vehicle, designed and built in partnership with Rivian, and expects to have 10,000 of the new vans on the road delivering to customers as early as 2022. In support of The Climate Pledge commitment to be net-zero carbon by 2040, Amazon expects to have 100,000 of the vehicles on the road by 2030. This is one of three different models that Amazon has invested in, and completely customized with Rivian, to save millions of metric tons of carbon per year while enhancing the driver experience and optimizing safety.”

“As well as the 4-wheeled vehicles 3-wheeled rickshaws will be purchased. The rollout begins this year in Delhi NCR, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Pune, Nagpur, and Coimbatore. This is the latest announcement pursuant to Amazon’s “Shipment Zero” vision, to make all Amazon shipments net zero carbon.”
