Walmart has announced plans to purchase 4,500 all-electric delivery vehicles from Canoo, an American electric vehicle developer and manufacturer. With an option to buy up to 10,000 units, Walmart’s initial order of Canoo’s Lifestyle Delivery Vehicle (LDV), are intended to deliver the retailer’s online orders.

While production of the LDV is expected to begin late this year, the companies will kick-off advanced deliveries to refine and finalize vehicle configuration in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex in the next months.

The LDV is built on a proprietary multi-purpose platform architecture, integrating the motors, battery module and other critical driving components. Featuring a modular design and 120 cubic feet of cargo volume, the model utilizes steer-by-wire technology, reducing moving parts and cabin intrusion, resulting in more usable interior space, better driver ergonomics and the addition of a panoramic window to improve road visibility, according to a Canoo description.
