每日新闻更新 — 亚马逊要走电动汽车的路线 The Daily Update – Amazon goes electric

亚马逊负责人杰夫·贝佐斯(Jeff Bezos)上周宣布,他的公司已从电动汽车领域的初创公司里维安(Rivian)那里订购了10万辆电动送货车。根据这个计划,这是第一批由里维安建造的货车,将在2021年投入使用,到2022年将有1万辆投入使用,到2030年的时候,所有10万辆都将投入运营。贝佐斯在发布《气候宣言》时宣布了这项订单,呼吁签署国在2040年之前实现零碳排放,这比《巴黎协定》设定的目标提前了十年。对货车的投资将“加速电动汽车的生产,对于减少运输中的排放来说,这是至关重要的”。

亚马逊长期以来一直都在寻求提高效率并降低送货运营成本的方法,尤其是在把货物送到大城市的消费者手中的“最后一英里”的交付方面。改用电动货车既可以降低燃料成本,又可以确保亚马逊的车辆不受城市中不断建立的低排放区的影响。

尽管里维安已经经营了10年,但是对于电动汽车行业来说,这是一个并不太知名的企业。今年年初,这个公司还是静悄悄的,不过在早些时候,随着一项巨大的筹款活动,开始了主要的扩展,有不少商业巨头都在对它进行大笔金额的投资,其中包括亚马逊在内。在2月份他们率先获得了7亿美元的融资。在这项投资运动中,接踵而来的便是福特;福特宣布了一项5亿美元的投资,其结果是福特将出售由里维安生产的电动汽车。最近,里维安从考克斯汽车公司(Cox Automotive)获得了3.5亿美元的投资。这两家公司将寻求在物流、服务运营和数字零售方面建立合作伙伴关系。

其它电动汽车行业的初创企业(甚至更大的相关企业)是不是要夜不能寐了?有了如此大的订单,里维安现在就可以充满信心地做长久打算了,业内人士都知道,锂资源是有限的。由于远期订单的规模和确定性,里维安无疑将获得电池制造商的优惠待遇,即便不是这样,但至少会挤压市场上的其他企业。
