He is brilliant, buys a fleet of EVs @ $100+K per van, and they are tax-deductible. Be ready to see many Amazon vans being towed all over the USA. Employees do not give a plain **** about the company's gear.

Yes, EV's are so green it's like unicorns farts.

Electricity is mostly generated either from fossil fuel, natural gas or coal.

Lithium for the batteries requires open pit mining. The process used to cure the lithium uses toxic pools. If a bird lands in it, it's dead within minutes.

Looking at the "big picture", my Suburban has less damage to the environment than an EV

That dude packs more fudge than Hersheys.
That being said, an EV local delivery van makes complete sense.

Is that one of those things Bezos bought from that startup which failed to fill the entire contract before imploding??? I seem to recall reading about some strife in both companies about vans somewhere... VB fact checkers???

AFAIK Amazon uses all subs for deliveries, so the sub this kid works for ponied up the cash for the EV, or Amazon made the purchase for a tax credit and publicity and leased them to the subs. They distance themselves from the actual delivery companies because of the accident liability and they unrealistic demands they cram down their throats.

Same old tired refrain from the Haters.

Amazon chose electric delivery vans because they make economic sense, not because they are "Green."

I sent latter to bozos, I only want my amazon junk delivered by ICE, if I cannot smell gasoline burning at the curb, I am not opening the front door!!

Siding with depend joe's idiotic and very nepotistic energy plans, will continue to ruin many great and lengthy American industries, while benefitting mostly socialists and the chinese.

As stated previously, I can list 20+M jobs that will lost in the next 10 years with maybe 5% being replaced in the ev industry.

And where the hell is the money for gov stipends for electric bills coming from, as in 10 years the upgraded grid costs and 100+% increase for kwh has yet to be addressed.

Do not tell me ev saves money, as the future cost for electricity will be higher vs, crude if we were allowed to drill.
****ING the G&O industry was needed to sell the sheeple on ev BS!!


Someone, please explain to me why / how the G&O industry is bad,,, thanks.

Iím not sure about that.

Either way itís good virtue signaling for Bezos. Keeps the commie nut jobs and their pitchforks away.

A wharehouse on wheels is "cool"?

There's a reason mail delivery is routed via jeep up here.

EV's are simply laughable outside urban city ghettos.

If that is truly his goal he might get more bang for the buck if he treated his workers a little better rather than trying to squeeze every last erg of performance out of them.
