Amazon’s electric vehicle delivery service, Blick, will be a full-fledged Amazon delivery service by 2019
The electric vehicle supply store Blick is in talks with Amazon about selling electric vehicles.
Blick currently sells gas and diesel electric vehicles but plans to open a full electric vehicle service in 2019.
The retailer’s website says its Blick will be Amazon’s first full electric car delivery service and that Amazon will provide leasing, delivery, and other services for electric vehicles on its website and in its stores.
Amazon is also looking at acquiring the electric vehicle dealership Blick in 2021, according to Bloomberg.
The company has a long history of investing in electric vehicle technology and is a leading proponent of charging infrastructure and charging stations across the U.S.
A spokeswoman for Blick declined to comment on Amazon’s plans for the company.
Blick is a subsidiary of electric vehicle startup Tesla Motors, which is also expanding its electric vehicle business into the automotive space.
Amazon purchased Blick for $500 million in February, a year after Tesla announced it was buying the company for $1.5 billion.
Brick said in its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission in December that it is looking to sell its assets to the public.
Tesla is also working on a plan to expand its electric vehicles business to include leasing of its vehicles.
