Amazon.com Inc. presented on Thursday its first custom electric delivery vehicle developed in partnership with electric automaker Rivian Automotive LLC.

"We wanted drivers to love using it and customers to feel excited when they saw it driving through their neighborhood and pulling up to their home," said Ross Rachey, Director of Amazon's Global Fleet and Products. "We combined Rivian’s technology with our delivery logistics knowledge, and the result is what you see here-the future of last-mile delivery."

Amazon noted it plans to have 10,000 custom electric delivery vehicles globally by 2022 and 100,000 such vehicles on the roads by 2030 as part of its vow to become carbon neutral by 2040.
