AMAZON has released a new electric delivery van that upgrades how your packages are shipped.
And one car influencer has given us an inside look at the van’s high-tech redesign – and asking if the company should make a consumer version of the electric vehicle.
Influencer Forrest Jones notes that Amazon’s new shipping vehicle is called EDV [electric delivery van.]
Jones highlights how Amazon’s EDV has a badge on its left-side trim that says the vehicle is powered by Rivian.
And because Rivian is an American electric auto manufacturer, that means that the new van is 100 percent electric.
The next EDV feature that Jones highlights is Amazon’s smile emblem in the middle of the automobile’s headlights, saying that the company wanted to make “it look as friendly as possible.”
Jeep’s Grand Cherokee is another vehicle that features a company logo within its headlights.
Cohesive design is a point of emphasis within this EDV, and much of the model’s interior trim sports Amazon’s signature Prime Blue color.
Jones shows that this EDV values function as much as form through features like a fold-out passenger seat and a built-in trainee cupholder.
The EDV’s driver seat is raised, so drivers stress their hips less when exiting the seat.
Rounding out this cabin’s amenities is forward-thinking technology like dual touch screens that mirror other Rivian vehicle designs.
When a driver shifts Amazon’s EDV into park, the model’s sliding door to the vehicle’s rear storage bay automatically opens.
All of the EDV’s seats are heated and ventilated to provide Amazon employees with year-round comfort, and the model’s key can clip to a driver’s shirt.
If you’re tired of loud beeping delivery sounds, Rivian swapped these pesky noises with white noise during reverse EDV driving.
This TikTok creator revealed some additional EDV features in the video’s comment section.
One TikTok user commented: “But is there ac [A/C]?
Forrest replied: “Haha yes. The A/C accounts for the door being open too!”
