Amazon was a big and early investor in Rivian. Since July, Amazon has rolled out more than 1,000 new Rivian vans.
The vans can travel up to 150 miles on a single charge, which is typically plenty of power for a full shift and allows drivers to recharge the vehicle overnight. The new vans have keyless entry. They automatically lock when the driver is 15 feet away and unlock as the driver approaches.
One driver’s favorite feature is a light bar “that goes all the way around the back.” He also likes that the windshield is “absolutely massive,” the wide doors allow for easy entry and exit, and the cargo door automatically opens when the van is parked. There are two rows of shelves that fold up and down in the cargo area.
