Amazon and Rivian jointly developed the e-vehicle
Amazon has revealed its first custom electric delivery vehicle, designed and built in partnership with Rivian.
The report states that 10,000 Amazon custom electric delivery vehicles will be on the road delivering to customers worldwide by 2022 and all 100,000 by 2030.
This is one of 3 different models that Amazon has invested in and completely customized with Rivian.
Amazon’s e-vehicle has a suite of highway and traffic assist technology, and a large windshield to enhance driver visibility.
It also includes exterior cameras around the vehicle that are linked to a digital display inside the cabin. It gives the driver a 360-degree view outside the vehicle.
Amazon’s vehicle provides Alexa integration for hands-free access to route information as well.
We’ve reported that Tesla actively increases its headcount for the global expansion.
