Amazon.com Inc. revealed an electric delivery van model being built for the retail giant by Rivian Automotive Inc., an early step toward getting 100,000 similar vehicles on the road in the next decade.

Amazon last year placed the order, the largest electric vehicle purchase in history, as part of a plan to eliminate the company’s contribution to greenhouse gas emissions by 2040. It aims to have the first vans on the road delivering packages next year.
