Amazon to use electric vans in 16 cities in 2021

E-commerce company announced on Wednesday that its electrical vans, specially designed and built by electric automaker Rivian, have started delivering around Los Angeles and will expand to an additional 15 American cities by the end of 2021.

The company's goal is to grow a fleet of electrical vans of 10,000 vehicles by 2022. Amazon noted that it took only one year from announcing the goal of introducing electric vehicles as part of ''The Climate Pledge" to deploying them to cities.

"We're loving the enthusiasm from customers so far - from the photos we see online to the car fans who stop our drivers for a first-hand look at the vehicle. From what we've seen, this is one of the fastest modern commercial electrification programs, and we're incredibly proud of that," said Ross Rachey, Amazon's director of Global Fleet and Products.
