BENTONVILLE, Ark. – Walmart recently announced its plan to buy 4,500 electric vehicles for Last Mile deliveries.

Officials say the vehicles will deliver online orders in a sustainable way which will also contribute to Walmart’s goal to achieve zero emissions by 2040.

Walmart said their vehicle of choice is the Lifestyle Delivery Vehicle by Canoo.

Canoo’s fully electric Lifestyle Delivery Vehicle (LDV) is an all-American commercial EV optimized for sustainable last mile delivery use cases.

“Walmart’s massive store footprint provides a strategic advantage in today’s growing ‘Need it now’ mindset and an unmatched opportunity for growing EV demand, especially at today’s gas prices,” said Tony Aquila, investor, chairman and CEO of Canoo.

Canoo anticipates starting production of the Lifestyle Delivery Vehicles beginning in Q4, 2022.
