(CercleFinance.com) – Amazon announced Monday that it has greatly expanded its fleet of electric utility vehicles in recent months, a dynamic that will allow it to deliver its parcels of green vehicles in about a hundred US cities during the winter period. .
The e-commerce giant explains that it has deployed hundreds of electric trucks from its partner Rivian over the summer, especially in cities such as Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Kansas City or San Diego.
With the latest phase of the expansion of its electric delivery – which affects cities such as Austin, Boston, Denver, Houston Las Vegas or New York – the milestone of 1,000 fully electric delivery vehicles, and this in one hundred cities, has now been reached.
For the record, Amazon has set itself the goal of putting around 100,000 new electric cars on the road by 2030.
For this, the Seattle group has notably made an investment in Rivian, a producer of emission-free electric vehicles based in Plymouth (Michigan).
