November 30, 2022
Domino's Pizza is electrifying pizza delivery! More than 100 custom-branded 2023
Chevy Bolt electric vehicles are arriving at select franchise and corporate
stores throughout the U.S. this month, with an additional 700 rolling out in the
coming months, making it the largest electric pizza delivery fleet in the
"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.
"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."
Electric vehicles provide several advantages for Domino's stores, including
ample battery life with the potential to have days of deliveries, zero tailpipe
emissions, advanced safety features and lower average maintenance costs than
nonelectric vehicles – all without the financial impact of high gas prices.
Electric fleet vehicles also provide more opportunity to attract delivery
drivers who don't have a car of their own. Today, Domino's already delivers with
electric bikes and/or scooters in 24 international markets, including the U.S.
"We're excited that Domino's has chosen the Chevrolet Bolt EV to build their
electric pizza delivery fleet in the U.S.," said Ed Peper, vice president of GM
Fleet. "Both companies are committed to bettering our environment. 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 range, the Chevy
Bolt EV is the future of Domino's electrified deliveries."
Domino's is partnering with Enterprise Fleet Management, which will offer local
hands-on account management, vehicle acquisition, financing, telematics
solutions and maintenance for the electric delivery fleet.
