Behind-the-scenes look of Amazon’s new sustainable delivery fleet in Madison – WMTV – NBC15


MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -Amazon’s new sustainable fleet of 26 electric delivery vans are now making emissions-free deliveries in Madison.
The state-of-the-art vehicles, rolling out across the country are a part of the tech giants climate pledge looking to be carbon neutral by 2040.
The Electric Delivery Vans (EDV’s) include touchscreens for drivers with all the package information and navigation they need. There are also more upgrades, like heated and cooled seats and steering wheels, exterior cameras, automatic emergency breaking and collision-warning technology.
Rivian says the vans can travel up to 150 miles before needing to be recharged, and the Amazon depot on Milwaukee Street is equipped with charging stations so each of them can be juiced up overnight for emissions-free deliveries the next day. The EDV has been designed to last for 10 years or 330,000 miles before needing to be replaced.
The sweet-faced look of the vehicles is intentional; Rivian designed the EDV to have a friendly demeanor since they will be a frequent sight in neighborhoods nationwide.
