Amazon has announced a roll out of an electric-powered delivery fleet in India. The announcement was made through founder, CEO and president, Jeff Bezos' twitter handle. 
 
In the video, Bezos is driving one of those e-rickshaws. This comes after Amazon had announced an investment of US$ 1 billion into India during his recent visit to the country. 
 
It is part of Amazon's global climate pledge which was announced in September 2019. It aims to have 50,000 electric vehicles on the road by 2025, with an aim to double that number by 2030. 
 
Amazon placed an order for 1,00,000 electric delivery vehicles with Rivian in 2019. The order follows a $440 million (approx Rs 3119.18 crore) investment made by the online shopping giant in the EV start-up earlier in the year.  The India three-wheelers are separate from this order.
