Rivian delivery vans ordered by Amazon have begun making deliveries across the United States. After Amazon’s initial testing ended, Rivian vans have been shipped to several major cities across the country, including Seattle, Chicago, Dallas, and Baltimore. The retail giant wants to implement these new vehicles quickly as it aims to make them available in more than 100 cities by the end of the year.

For the rest of the decade, Rivian will deliver the remaining vans that were part of the original order, which will be enough to meet Amazon’s goal of having 100,000 electric delivery vehicles on the road by 2030.

This goal may be quite pessimistic as Amazon has also ordered a number of the upcoming Ram Promaster EV to be launched in 2023, thus far exceeding its current electric delivery van count of 100,000 on order.Rivian Delivery Vans

The news of its vans being put to use is a significant milestone for Rivian as the young automaker only started producing the vehicle less than a year ago.

The company had trouble ramping up its production rate in the first months of operations, but now appears to have picked up enough to deliver.
