Domino’s Is Adding 800 Chevy Bolt EVs to Its Delivery Fleet

  • Domino’s will begin delivering pizzas with Chevy Bolt EVs this month, with the fleet expanding to more than 800 Bolts by 2023.
  • Domino’s says benefits are zero tailpipes, reduced maintenance costs and the ability to add delivery drivers who don’t own a personal vehicle.
  • The Bolt EV has an EPA-estimated range of 259 miles, and the 200-hp powertrain provides snappy acceleration for around-town driving.

Back in 2015, Domino’s introduced the DXP, a Chevy Spark modified specifically for pizza delivery service with a built-in oven. In 2017, we pitted the DXP against the former staple of pizza transportation, a ratty Mitsubishi Eclipse with faded flame decals, and the DXP won handily. But the times they are changing, and Domino’s is preparing for the future, announcing that it will begin using 2023 Chevy Bolt EVs to deliver pizzas across the country, with more than 100 Domino’s-branded Bolts hitting stores this month.

Another 700 Bolts will arrive in the coming months, which Domino’s says will make it the largest electric pizza delivery fleet in the country, though we’re not sure how much competition there is for that title. With more than 6,000 stores in the US, not every location will get a Bolt, but it’s a significant step up from the 155 DXPs built in 2015. The Bolt EVs that Domino’s will use appear to have ditched the built-in oven from the DXP, reducing cost and complexity – converting the Spark into a DXP added about $9000 to the price.

Along with eliminating tailpipes, Domino’s expects the major benefits to be lower average maintenance costs and not having to shell out for expensive gas. Domino’s says it expects the battery life to potentially last for “days of deliveries,” with the Bolt EV achieving a 259-mile range estimate from the EPA. Domino’s also hopes that the fleet vehicles will bring in more delivery drivers who do not own their own car, as many locations still require drivers to provide their own transport.

The Bolt EV features a quiet and comfortable cabin — hopefully leading to happier, more relaxed drivers — and the 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque make the electric hatchback feel zippy around town, so the time between ordering your pizza and its kick your esophagus should be reduced. That sounds like a win-win to us.

For the most dedicated Domino’s fans, the pizza company has created an interactive map to keep track of how many Bolt EVs there are in each state, meaning they can calculate the odds that the next pizza they order will be delivered via electric power.
