Rivian announced in a press release that the first of more than 300 of its electric delivery vans that Amazon is deploying in Europe will be hitting the road across Germany over the coming weeks. The electric vans will be used to deliver packages across major cities including Munich, Berlin and Dusseldorf. In Europe, Amazon and Rivian specially designed a shorter, thinner van than what’s used in the United States to better fit in Europe’s cities.
Since its partnership with Amazon was first announced in 2019, Amazon has been delivering packages with the Rivian Electric Delivery Van in over 500 U.S. cities. So far, it has purchased and is using more than 3,000 vans. Amazon aims to have 100,000 electric delivery vehicles from Rivian on the road globally by 2030.
