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.

When we set out to create our first customized electric delivery vehicle with Rivian, we knew that it needed to far surpass any other delivery vehicle. 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 combined Rivian’s technology with our delivery logistics knowledge, and the result is what you see here-the future of last-mile delivery

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.
