Domino’s Pizza to Deliver with Chevy Bolt EVs

Domino’s Pizza is adding more than 100 custom-branded 2023 Chevy Bolt electric vehicles at select franchise and corporate stores in the U.S. this month, with an additional 700 to be added in the coming months.

"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 chief executive officer, in a statement. "Domino's has always been on the cutting edge of pizza delivery and electric delivery cars make sense as vehicle technology continues to evolve. 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." 

Among the advantages cited by Domino’s for making the switch to EVs are ample battery life with the potential to provide days of deliveries, zero tailpipe emissions, advanced safety features, and lower average maintenance costs than non-electric vehicles, without the financial impact of high gas prices.

Domino’s already uses electric bikes and scooters to deliver in 24 international markets, including the U.S.
