Flick Fact: Will those Amazon vehicles made by Rivian be all over Bloomington-Normal?

  • 0

Question: True or false: When Amazon begins using its 100,000 electric vehicles to be built at Rivian’s Normal plant, there’s a much better chance you’ll see one in Los Angeles or New York City than Bloomington-Normal.

Answer: That’s true. Amazon says it plans to most use its 100,000 Rivian-made vehicles in areas of dense urban population. Reason: Each van has a range of 150 to 200 miles per charge, and in more spread-out areas with fewer residents and farther distances to make deliveries, like B-N, the electric vehicles won’t be as practical.
