Amazon debuts its first custom fully electric delivery vehicle

US online shopping giant Amazon has received their first custom-built EV delivery van.

Built through its partnership with Rivian, the vehicle externally shares many similarities with its internal combustion counterparts. The main difference, however, lies under its skin.

In a blog post detailing the vehicle, Amazon laid out some of its unique features. The van is fitted with sensor-based highway driving and traffic assist systems, exterior 360-degree cameras, larger than the usual driving compartment, integrated three-level shelving with a bulkhead cargo compartment separating door, and a built-in Alexa voice assistant.

Amazon aims to massively expand its all-electric fleet by 2030, starting with 10,000 of these vans on roads globally within the next two years. With the final production goal being 100,000 units.
