Amazon has announced plans to introduce its initial fleet of European vans in Germany in the upcoming weeks. These vans, manufactured by U.S. electric vehicle company Rivian, will contribute to Amazon's long-term objective of electrifying its transportation network. In total, 300 electric vans will be deployed in the regions of Munich, Berlin, and Dusseldorf. This initiative is part of a substantial order placed by Amazon in 2019, encompassing 100,000 vehicles from Rivian, with Amazon being the largest shareholder in the company.

To ensure suitability for European cities, Rivian and Amazon have developed a specially-designed van that is shorter and thinner than its American counterpart. This aims to facilitate navigation through the narrower streets commonly found in European urban areas.
