Photos: First Electric Amazon Delivery Vehicles Seen Around Bay Area

Amazon is reportedly planning to deploy over 100,000 all-electric delivery vehicles, in an effort to cut emissions and the company’s climate impact.

The electric trucks were developed with Rivian, an emerging electric vehicle company that currently sells pickup trucks and SUVs to consumers.

Now, the very first Amazon electric delivery vehicles are starting to hit the roads. Of the 1,000 that Amazon has put into service so far, it appears that several are now cruising the streets of the Bay Area.

The Bay Area Telegraph observed two electric vehicles making their delivery rounds in Lafayette and Pleasant Hill this week. As with many new automotive technologies, the Bay Area is apparently a testbed for these zero-emissions electric trucks.
