One of America’s most popular pizza chains is going green(er). Domino’s has rolled out 50 electric delivery vehicles across the greater Los Angeles area as part of a nationwide effort to reduce emissions among its delivery fleet.
In total, 17 locally owned Domino’s stores now feature delivery from brand new electric vehicles.
The 50 vehicles are 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EVs that feature the pizza chain’s branding.
The largest pizza chain in the world said those L.A.-area vehicles are part of the largest electric pizza delivery fleet in the country, with more than 650 EVs in service at Domino’s stores across the country.
Ommid Ferdows, a franchise owner of one of the Domino’s stores to feature the new electric delivery vehicles, said the electric vehicle fleet makes “complete sense as vehicle technology continues to evolve.”
Domino’s said the electric vehicles offer additional advantages compared to standard gasoline-powered vehicles, 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.”
The Domino’s-owned vehicles are also an added incentive for prospective delivery drivers who don’t own their own vehicles, the company said. The pizza chain also offers delivery via electric bikes and scooters in some select markets.
