Domino's is deploying hundreds of electric vehicles at locations across the U.S. in what it says will be the largest fleet of electric delivery vehicles in the country, according to a news release.
Some 112 of the Chevrolet Bolts are already in service. By the end of 2023, the company expects to have 855 of the eye-catching vehicles festooned in red, white, and blue at both franchise and corporate-run locations.

Though the environmental benefits of no-emission delivery vehicles are obvious — Domino’s has committed to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 — there are other benefits to switching to EVs. Day-to-day maintenance is easier and faster since the cars don't need to be refueled or taken in for oil changes, for instance, though they do have to be recharged. The Bolts have a range of about 259 miles.
But the biggest benefit may be hardest to measure: attracting employees. The labor shortage has hit pizza delivery hard, so much so that Domino's even ran a promotion that paid its customers to forgo delivery by picking up their pizzas. Now the company is hoping that sleek new 2023 cars will attract more drivers, whether they have cars of their own or not.
