Rivian is supposed to deliver 10,000 delivery vans to Amazon by the end of this year. If it doesn’t meet that production deadline, its bottom line could suffer. The firm has said it expects much of its near-term revenue to come from the retailer’s delivery order.

As for Stellantis, the partnership with Amazon could help the company catch up with rival automakers not only by expanding its EV offerings, but also in the sophistication of its vehicle technology. In addition to delivery vans, the automaker said yesterday it will work with the retailer on developing an in-vehicle software platform featuring voice assistance enabled by Amazon’s Alexa, as well as integrate the company’s AWS cloud services into its vehicles.
