The delivery system at
is getting a makeover. The company said Monday that more than 100 Chevy Bolt electric vehicles are arriving throughout the country this month, with 700 more on the way, “making it the largest electric pizza delivery fleet in the country.”
An interactive company webpage offers users a real-time look at which states already have Domino’s EVs. Indiana has 33, while Iowa has 15. Michigan has 12.
EVs offer several positives, Domino’s (ticker: DPZ) said, which include ample battery life, zero tailpipe emissions, and a shield from high gasoline prices. The new vehicles will also make it easier to attract drivers who don’t have a car of their own, the company said.
Domino’s already delivers using electric bikes or scooters in 24 international markets, including the U.S., it said.
“Domino’s launched pizza delivery in 1960 with a Volkswagen Beetle, rolled out the DXP® – a custom-built pizza delivery vehicle – in 2015, tested autonomous pizza delivery with cars and robots, and is now leading the charge in the future of pizza delivery,” said Russell Weiner, Domino’s CEO.
Domino’s is partnering with Enterprise Fleet Management to aid with vehicle acquisitions, financing, maintenance, and management, the company said.
