Domino’s to deploy 1,100+ Chevy Bolt EVs for deliveries

Domino’s (NYSE: DPZ) made headlines in November 2022 when it revealed its ambitious plan to introduce 800 2023 Chevy Bolt EVs as delivery vehicles by the end of the year. True to their word, these electric cars are now zipping around, efficiently delivering pizzas.

Today, Domino’s announced that it will further expand its EV fleet by adding over 300 additional Chevy Bolts by the year’s end. These new additions will be deployed in select franchise and corporate stores across the United States.

With this expansion, Domino’s aims to have a whopping 1,156 EVs in its fleet by the close of 2023. As a result, Domino’s will proudly possess the largest electric pizza delivery fleet in the United States, demonstrating its commitment to sustainable transportation solutions.

Of course, it’s a no-brainer for food delivery companies to use EVs. As Joe Jordan, Domino’s president of US and global services, explained, “We’re continuing to see a wide range of advantages from using EVs. In addition to business and environmental benefits, an electric delivery fleet also helps with hiring drivers, as they open up a whole new pool of job candidates who may not have their own vehicles.”

Electrek’s Take

Domino’s had designated the 2023 Chevy Bolt as the “official car” for its electric delivery fleet. However, due to General Motors’ decision to discontinue Bolt production and shift focus to the Ultium platform, Domino’s will likely need to make a switch.

With GM planning to introduce the affordable Chevy Equinox EV priced around $30,000, it is possible that Domino’s may choose it as the new official vehicle.

Nonetheless, Domino’s recognizes the inherent benefits of electrifying its delivery fleet and is committed to embracing sustainable transportation solutions.
