Amazon operates hundreds of electric vehicles across the globe and has invested $440 million in Rivian to accelerate the production of electric vehicles, which are critical to reducing emissions from transportation. As part of our commitment to The Climate Pledge, Amazon recently ordered 100,000 new electric delivery vehicles from Rivian, the largest order ever of electric delivery vehicles. Amazon plans to start using these new electric vehicles to deliver packages to customers by 2021, with 10,000 new vehicles on the road as early as 2021 and all 100,000 vehicles on the road by 2030, saving 4 million metric tons of carbon per year by 2030.

By joining The Climate Pledge and agreeing to decarbonize on a faster time horizon, signatories will play a critical role in stimulating investment in the development of low carbon products and services that will be required to help companies meet the pledge. Amazon’s previously announced investment in Rivian is an example of this. Rivian is a producer of emissions-free electric vehicles with its headquarters in Plymouth, Michigan and a manufacturing plant in Normal, Illinois. The $440 million investment will accelerate the production of electric vehicles critical to reducing emissions from transportation. To further advance this goal, Amazon today announced the order of 100,000 electric delivery vehicles from Rivian, the largest order ever of electric delivery vehicles, with vans starting to deliver packages to customers in 2021. Amazon plans to have 10,000 of the new electric vehicles on the road as early as 2022 and all 100,000 vehicles on the road by 2030 – saving 4 million metric tons of carbon per year by 2030.
