Amazon is showing off what it calls its first custom electric delivery vehicle, which is built by startup Rivian and has been tailored to suit its delivery operations, with plans to roll them out across the globe in 2022.
The world’s largest retailer Amazon has signed on to buy 100,000 of Rivian's zero-emission trucks as part of a wider push to clean up its business operations.
Overlanding in an electric vehicle, meandering miles off the electrical grid for days, has so far been virtually unfathomable. But electric truck startup Rivian is hoping to make it more mainstream. Its electric pickup camper has 400 miles (644 km) of range, a roof-top tent and an electric kitchen.
