In the very near future, your Domino’s pizza order might be delivered in an electric vehicle – at least, in the US. The pizza chain giant (the biggest pizza company in the world, to be precise) announced that it is leaning into the electrification movement by adding over 800 2023 Chevy Bolt EVs to its delivery fleet. This strategy shift will grant Domino’s bragging rights for having the largest electric pizza delivery fleet in the US.
This isn’t Domino’s first electric rodeo, however. In 2019, the pizza chain debuted a test program that saw its drivers utilize custom electric bikes to reduce emissions and save on gas. The program was well received among both employees and customers, as quicker delivery times were reported in addition to higher team member satisfaction.
“Domino’s has always been on the cutting edge of pizza delivery and electric delivery cars make sense as vehicle technology continues to evolve,” shares Domino’s CEO Russel Weiner. “We’ve made a commitment to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, and this is one way we can begin reducing our environmental impact, one delivery at a time.”
Domino’s will reportedly roll out over 100 custom-branded 2023 Chevy Bolt EVs in the US this month, with plans to add an additional 700 over the next few months. This move is expected to help the company cut emissions, reduce costs, attract more drivers, empower employee satisfaction, and enhance driver safety courtesy of the advanced safety features offered by the Chevy Bolt EV.
“We’re excited that Domino’s has chosen the Chevrolet Bolt EV to build their electric pizza delivery fleet in the U.S. Both companies are committed to bettering our environment,” shares Ed Peper, VP of GM Fleet. “GM plans to eliminate tailpipe emissions from new U.S. light duty vehicles by 2035. With an affordable price, fun driving characteristics, and a 259-mile [416-km] range, the Chevy Bolt EV is the future of Domino’s electrified deliveries.”
