Did you watch Jeff Bezos’ space ride? If yes, you might have witnessed Jeff Bezos and his fellow astronauts zipping through to the Blue Origin launch site in an electric SUV. That’s an R1S electric SUV manufactured by the US-based electric vehicle manufacturer Rivian.
Well, the reason behind the car company loaned the pre-production R1S vehicle is that Amazon is one of the largest investors with $700M in the company. Additionally, the company has reportedly ordered 100,000 vehicles to fill last-mile delivery and shipping needs for its Prime delivery service.
