Walmart Begins Deliveries With Canoo EVs
Canoo's Lifestyle Delivery Vehicle branded for Walmart (Walmart)

Walmart has started making deliveries in Texas using electric vehicles manufactured by its Bentonville neighbor Canoo.

The deliveries began less than two weeks after Walmart announced a 4,500-vehicle purchase agreement with Canoo to support its growing e-commerce business. Canoo's Lifestyle Delivery Vehicle, an SUV-like model, is now making real-world deliveries in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for Walmart's InHome service.

The vehicles have been "turning a lot of heads" in the area, CEO Tony Aquila said in a news release. 

The delivery rollout comes ahead of the vehicle's official debut in 2023.

Canoo's five-year agreement with Walmart gives the retail giant the option to purchase up to 10,000 vehicles. The companies have also entered into a Warrant Issuance Agreement that could result in Walmart owning more than 20% of the electric vehicle maker.
