AT&T Adds Rivian EVs to Fleet

AT&T signed an agreement to purchase electric vehicles (EVs) through a pilot program aimed at lowering transport emissions.

The telecommunications company will purchase EVs from Rivian Automotive, Inc.

AT&T expects to begin adding the Rivian Commercial Van and R1 vehicles to its commercial fleet in early 2024 to begin evaluating the various ways these vehicles help improve safety, reduce costs, and reduce the company's carbon footprint.

The pilot program with Rivian will allow AT&T to explore new paths in its electrification journey, which is expected to contribute toward the company’s commitment of carbon neutrality by 2035.

AT&T’s plan includes reducing its fleet emissions by optimizing routes, switching to hybrid and EVs, and reducing the overall size of its fleet. 

The company also uses AI to make its fleet more efficient. Overall, AT&T drives 20% fewer miles each year, reducing emissions by 51 million pounds.

“We’re excited to purchase Rivian EVs for our fleet,” said Hardmon Williams, SVP, AT&T Connected Solutions, in a statement. “This pilot is another important step in our ongoing efforts toward sustainability, reducing our carbon footprint and embracing a cleaner future for our operations. With advanced connectivity and a vision for a sustainable future, Rivian is setting the standard for the evolving demands of modern transportation.”
