2022 Rivian Amazon Prime Van Model Names and Trims Revealed

The first 10,000 Rivian Amazon Prime delivery vans will begin to infiltrate roads across America by the end of 2022, just in time for the hectic holiday shopping season. As part of a long-term contract with Amazon, Rivian has agreed to produce 100,000 units of the highly anticipated all-electric delivery van by 2030. We now have additional details on what appears to be the official model names and trims of the bubbly-looking electric van.

According to a VIN document filed with the NHTSA and posted on Rivian Owners Forum, the Rivian Amazon Prime delivery van will come in two trims: “S” for Service and “Z” for Amazon. Based on what we can make of the VIN decoder sheet, the Service trim could likely be made available for purchase to fleets outside of Amazon Prime shipping.

As we could have guessed going by the three previously disclosed cargo capacities, the document also reveals that the vans will be referred to by simple, numerical names: 500 and 700, and down the road, 900. Each number denotes the capacity in cubic feet each van will have to devote to cargo and packages. The 500 vans will be available in left-hand and right-hand drive. There are, so far, three known powertrain options: dual-motor all-wheel-drive, dual-motor front-wheel-drive, and single-motor FWD.
