The pizza restaurant chain said 100 electric vehicles would arrive at select franchise and corporate stores across the United States by the end of November. An additional 700 will be added to its EV fleet later.
“Domino’s has always been on the cutting edge of pizza delivery, and electric delivery cars make sense as vehicle technology continues to evolve,” Domino’s Pizza CEO Russell Weiner said. “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.”
Domino’s Pizza listed lowering the financial impact caused by high gas prices among the decision’s advantages.
“Electric fleet vehicles also provide more opportunity to attract delivery drivers who don’t have a car of their own,” the company said.
Domino’s Pizza said it will have 855 electric delivery cars on the road by the end of 2023, with at least one in almost every state.
