Amazon ordered 100,000 electric delivery vans from Rivian. Earlier this year, Amazon launched a Rivian delivery van in Europe. It started depriving packages to customers in Munich, Germany.
“We’re thrilled to see the EDV rolling out in Germany today. This vehicle was designed in conjunction with our partners at Amazon and not only puts driver convenience and safety first, but also the environment,” commented Sagan Mishoulam, Rivian’s VP of Strategy & Go To Market.
In March 2023, Rivian tried renegotiating the exclusivity clause in its agreement with Amazon. The 2019 agreement required Rivian to sell all its vans to Amazon. While Rivian wanted to renegotiate the exclusivity clause, Amazon looked into decreasing the amount of electric delivery vans it purchased from Rivian. At the time, Amazon was affected by the financial pressure in Silicon Valley.
Based on Amazon’s recent report on Rivian delivery vans, it will still be purchasing 100,000 units of the electric vehicle.
