Rivian vehicles are everywhere these days. Just this week, I spotted an R1T on the road and an Amazon EDV delivering packages. It was the first time I saw an EDV in action. As a sidenote, the driver did a little tire tap on the curb. No biggie though.
Amazon announced that it has doubled its Rivian van fleet to 10,000 in just four months. That’s an impressive feat and a sign of how transportation is changing rapidly.
I applaud Rivian and Amazon for leading the way in electrifying and transforming the automotive and delivery sectors.
